Raw salmon is a food item.
The most common way of obtaining raw salmon is fishing. The wait time of one being caught is decreased with the Lure enchantment and the chance of one being caught is slightly decreased with the Luck of the Sea enchantment (named as such because it increases treasure, not fish).
Catching salmon awards 1-6 experience.
Guardians and Elder Guardians
Guardians and elder guardians have a 2.5% chance of dropping a random fish upon death. This has a 25% chance of being raw salmon. The chance of getting the fish drop can be increased by 1% per level of Looting, but the type of fish is not affected.
Polar bears have a 25% chance to drop 0–2 raw salmon when killed. The maximum amount can be increased by 1 per level of Looting, for a maximum of 0-5 with Looting III.
Salmon always drops 1 raw salmon in its item form when killed. If the salmon is killed while on fire, then it drops cooked salmon instead.

Raw salmon restores 2 () and 0.2 saturation.
Salmon can be used to tame cats with 1⁄3 chance of success. Salmon can also be used to get cats off of chests, beds, etc.; breed cats or ocelots; make baby cats and baby ocelots grow up faster by 10% of the remaining time; and gain ocelot's trust. Additionally raw salmon can be used to heal cats by 2.
A dolphin can be fed raw salmon to increase its trust of the player and cause it to interact with the player more often. However, unlike most other animal mobs, this does not cause them to breed.
Additionally, dolphins swim to the nearest chest in a shipwreck or underwater ruin after they are fed raw salmon. If the chest in the nearest structure is broken, they swim to another structure with a chest.
Journeyman-level Fisherman villagers offer to buy 13 raw salmon for an emerald.
In Bedrock Edition, raw salmon can be fed only to wolves not at full health, healing them by 2. Unlike other wolf food, raw salmon cannot be used to breed wolves or to accelerate the growth of baby wolves.
