All Salmon Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2020
But at extra stores maybe
So not national
Not at my local Aston lane ;( after I saw this I really fancied its for £15
Does Norway salmon still get a bad rep?
Got 2x 1kg sides of salmon today at Morrisons for £5 each down from £10! Now just got to find enough recipes to vary it
Silly comment - these fish Tesco are selling are reared in cages off our coastline - using antibiotics and pathogenic chemicals to kill off the frequent sea lice infestations that end up infecting our wild fish and ultimately enjoyed are heading towards wiping out entirely our wild fish stocks. DON’T BUY THIS PRODUCT - Not from anywhere - it’s killing our natural fish https://www.anglingtrust.net/page.asp?section=1180
You can go for essentials but obviously not just for this product which I'm sure many people understand. It's good to have a full salmon as this will last a long time rather than a few fillets so in that sense this is good.
Are you not happy because your deal was taken down or because this one is still up?

Thank you rapid85. Very helpful. :)
Costco online is not as good as in store because you often have to pay premium delivery included in the cost, which claims 'free' delivery. It's not and it's very naughty. For example and for arguments sake, you may pay £12 or so for toilet rolls in store whereas they're £17 with 'free' delivery online. I've taken those figures randomly but just for an example. That's not to say they don't have good online deals, they do, particularly if you're a big tech or appliance buyer. For those that have a local costco, membership to the bricks and mortor store is a no brainer if it has a fuel station and you'll save the membership in fuel alone.
Is it worth becoming a costco online shopper member? Will it access to better deals?
Today in Lakeside a lot of great deals on meat and fish also. Not to many people and not any queue outside.
Wow.....this deal has got much more epic than I anticipated when I posted it! Great deal on the duck (y)
This has been out of stock for 2 days it needs to be expired
out of stock
Ha, weirdly my cat used to go nuts for this stuff and turned his nose up at whiskas etc.
This is super cheap (quality wise) stuff, sold for even less than the supermarket own brand. My kitty would eat it eventually but clearly wasn't keen on it.
Oops out of stock

In 2012, they said 100% would be sustainable by 2016: https://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/tesco-john-west-tuna-greenpeace-ellie-goulding-trawler-line-caught-sustainability-a7156126.html Unless you are a member of the Guardian, you will be unable to read this article (I'm not either), however, in 2015 they said that 100% of their catch would come from pole and line fishing, a sustainable source: https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/11913625/John-West-breaks-promise-to-use-sustainable-fishing-methods.html According to their own website, only 20% of their catch today uses a sustainable method (pole and line) and much of that goes to retailers for their "own brand" labelling. So, that means that barely any John West labelled tuna uses a pole and line method, this is after they promised 100% would by 2017: https://www.john-west.co.uk/sustainability/responsible-sourcing/fishing-methods/ Their own website states that they would need too many boats to sustain "global demand", so they still use un-sustainable, damaging methods for the majority of their catch. They are now trying to diminish pole and line fishing by saying: "A label of Pole & Line or FAD free does not necessarily mean that the fish is sourced from a sustainable fishery; these are just fishing methods; one element of the supply chain." This is true, however, you need a sustainable fishery AND method of catching, they are ignoring one part of this. They also source a lot from Asia, a cannery in Thailand. I've lived and worked in Thailand/Malaysia as a diving instructor for four years, sadly there is a lot of corruption in those regions, money talks and they are a major player. I know that fishing there even occurs in "National Marine Parks", I have seen it first hand. They will get individual boat owners who will state it came from a sustainable area, but this doesn't mean it actually did. I cannot say 100% that they fish in such a protected area, but they will not know either, they are not monitoring exactly where boats fish. However, I know that their methods are not sustainable I have seen the effects of net fishing first hand on many, many occasions. I've seen a lot of discarded/torn nets covering reefs, occasionally we got to them in time to release some marine life, sadly, too often we were too late. Net fishing is incredibly destructive, it cannot target one specific species, it damages the environment, that is proven.
Probably Cheap cause it's horrible as usual
Don’t buy John West, Princes etc. They’re disgusting companies that don’t fish sustainably at all but claim to be. Most store own brands such as Aldi and Lidl and Sainsbury’s tuna is actually much better for the sea.
Actually that’s not a better deal, you lose out an a whole 20g of dreamies with that one (lol)
This item does not ship to Ireland
It also wasn’t far off being true (lol)
The t.v advert for this was insane.
I’ve done subscriptions before but had none active at time of purchase.
I'm not too keen on pink salmon but nevertheless this is a good deal, voted hot (highfive)
Went to two stores in Solihull, none had any glitches whatsoever. Absolutely pointless deal.
Hello? Anyone one else managed to buy one for £7 or are we going to rant about wild and farmer
For those who enquired about the safety of farmed salmon may I suggest that there is plenty of information about this topic on the internet. Its something that I have been reading about for years, I dont know how anyone can have missed it. I am sure that Scottish salmon farms are on the whole well managed but not all..There was the One Show expose https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BuNB-W8sTMg and another for good measure .https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uBRKH1xukno I also watched a program recently which highlighted the fact that the breakdown of highly toxic plastics in sea water is reaching such a concentration that it is already manifesting in fish and will impact us all in due course. For me as a fisherman I am just as concerned about the level of parasitic infestation I am seeing in the fish I catch. These parasites and worms can be seen in the eyes , intestines and flesh of the fish I catch. I cant recall anything like this in the 70's. I have virtually given up eating fish and cant see me returning to this once loved food any time soon.
This is Norwegian, totally different, do some research on Scottish farms - they are miles ahead
If you live near a salmon fishing river chances are it's not that hard to come by.
If one would rather have wild salmon one simply needs to instruct ones ghillie to nip out and bag one from ones river running through ones private estate, Tally Ho ! I will have to make do with the farmed stuff just like the other 99% of the population. (y)
Did ye process wild salmon before turning to farmed
It's the distance.
None at my Lidl
£8.53 in my local store got the last two bags.
Thanks hopefully my local Tesco have these.
Picked this up at our local for £5. They seem to be getting rid of Purina but "As Good as It Looks" is reduced to £3.60 where you can buy it off another shelf for 2 for £7.00. Tesco are very odd sometimes with puddy food.
Great news mine been delivered but at work till 8 tonight
4 boxes delivered! Great find - thanks
I know someone who tried to do that and they linked his address to the old account and closed the new one as well.
They did that once to a guy who was returning everything and pretty sure he only did it to get on MSE, you can open multiple accounts under a different email addresses anyway
Ah fair enough. Pretty sure we buy and keep more on my prime account than we return so highly doubt they will be closing it anytime soon.
Never but fish after Saturday in supermarkets they will always be too old. Wed or Thurs are fresh.
This is now the standard price; it was selling for as low as £4.50 a few years ago but has gradually crept up (but has been higher).
The right tools for the job are available in another deal here: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/nuby-childrens-3-piece-stainless-steel-monkey-cutlery-set-150-also-bunny-or-lion-at-bm-3098044
This also contains blood where as Morrison’s was much cleaner I’v Heard the non farmed is good but looking for some atm
Its nationwide. Sell by dates range from the 4th -12th January in my store.
Catch it, fillet it then smoke it?
anyone interested how they made this smoke salmon?
Picked the same deal up in Cardiff, likely nationwide
Feel smoke heat :D
Read the rest of the comments. That offer doesn't exist. When you buy a whole fish and ask a fishmonger to fillet it for you they don't chuck in some free extra fillets to make up for the wastage. The fish is priced up before it's filleted.
Where is this from?
£6.25 per kg of filleted salmon today at asda. Should be national
Got mine today!
Check again at the till, from the photo you can see one of the salmon is saying £12 and the rest half price
went to our Sainsbury's to buy the 300g smoked salmon for £2.5, unfortunately it was still £5 even when we scanned it... (annoyed)
Thanks OP for posting this, as good reminder to check out stores on Boxing Day. Had no idea items are reduced to as much as 50%.
my Local is better now they changed the man that reduces items. There is a girl that is a hmm Thinks she is something special because she is in charge of reducing items. I remember going to Waitrose when we both lost our jobs and I walked past main reception and the security guard said to the customer service lady I wonder where she is going only to the reduced food area. I sort of lost it completely because they were laughing at me. It didn’t happen again.
Sorry just realised you said it only starts on Boxing Day!
Full price in bamber bridge. The gammon with mulled cider glaze still scanning at £10. Checked today
I’ve just bought some and it’s vile! I think it was smoked with the burning embers of someone’s rubbish!
Fake news! (y)
Its a tweet from Morrisons this morning - not my doing :)
I can't find it online either.
Anyone seen this in store? Seems unbelievable cheap - I cant find it online? OP - are your Google search settings set to pre 2000 - or are you Marty McFly?
I find this fascinating. Presumably those offended by farmed fish are buying only freshly caught wild cows, sheep, pigs and turkeys.
It’s Farmed Fish. Better off without it
I work for a very reputable salmon processor who take sourcing salmon very seriously. Don’t get me wrong, 10 years ago there were a lot of irresponsible farms, but not anymore. In Scotland in particular the farms do outstanding work. Obviously like any farming, there are still incidents, that the press love to jump on and make out it is the “norm”, but it simply isn’t - like any media nowadays it’s simply exaggerated hysterical click bait to try and generate ad revenue. If you really are interested there are some excellent factual reports on how salmon farming is performing very responsibly. Sadly the opposite is true for wild salmon fishing, which has lead to stocks being at their lowest ever and now placing them on the “do not eat” list, along with many other fish species.
I goto Morrisons for 5er a kilo, plus they scale, gut and bag for you
Voted hot - all I need to do now is find one, buy one and devour one!
I didnt put the link on either, because its not online so there is no link
Ohh, i didnt put that picture on, i dont know where it came from
The one in rhhe deal, i look closer looks like it says 200g in the pic but not sure Think ypu used the wrong pic
What is OPs ? The normal pack as far as i know is only 200g and its around £22 per kilo, this one theyve got for christmas is 300g pack around £14 per kilo
Wait is that what it looks like or in OPs image?
It's 300g - so a great price. Normally 130g for this price. Thanks for posting.
Sheep are out.That's a good price.
