Highlight from the July Wellness Letter: Ask the Experts
Question: What is the gray layer under the skin in salmon? Is it OK to eat?
Answer: Salmon (and other fish) develop a gray-brown layer of insulating fat between their skin and flesh. This is in addition to fat deposited within the flesh. Yes, it's okay to eat it. A large amount of the healthy omega-3 fats in salmon are found here. For cosmetic reasons, however, vendors may remove the skin.
