Default Spring Salmon Fillet Weight yield???

Has anyone here ever checked what their fillet weight is from whole weight? In my food stats quest I am just wondering...Hopefully I can get a few more and get some numbers, but just checking if anyone else has checked into this.

Roughly 50%, depending on the carvers skills. I have friends that would bring it closer to 30%

You can get up to 65% if you're really good. Yes, I've done the math.

Lol...I've seen some people up the percentage by leaving some of the backbone and/or fins on the "fillet".

Not much left after filleting a springer, tiny head, very little guts and really not much bone. 65% if you leave the skin on the fillet.

Man I love springers.

Pancake are good too.

I only leave the back bone head and tail and a small bit of meat but i also have to deal with bones and fins and such it just seems less wasteful.
I am not the best at it but i saw through the ribs and it seems to work my family doesn't complain to much about the bones.

I agree if you are carefull you get 2/3rds 66% with skin on and all fins removed
then if you save the fins, tail, head, and chop up the back bone in sections you get enough to bait 2 crab pots for most of a day. And you hope that will net you at least one more dinner.
