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).
Guardians and Elder Guardians
Guardians and elder guardians drop a random fish as a rare drop besides the common raw cod drop. This has a 25% chance of being raw salmon. The chance of getting a fish can be increased with Looting, but the type of fish is not affected.
Polar bears drop 0–2 raw fish when killed. This has a 25% chance of being raw salmon. The salmon will be raw even if the polar bear is on fire when killed.
Salmon will always drop 1 raw salmon in its item form when killed. If the salmon was killed while on fire, then it will drop cooked salmon instead.
Raw salmon can be found in 61.5% of bonus chests in stacks of 1–2.
|Raw Salmon +
Salmon can be used to tame ocelots.[Java and Legacy Console editions only][until JE 1.14] Salmon can also be used to get cats off of chests, beds, etc.; breed cats; make baby cats grow up faster by 10% of the remaining time; and gain ocelot's trust[Bedrock and PlayStation 4 editions only][upcoming: JE 1.14].
Dolphins can be fed raw salmon. Doing this will increase their trust with the player, and interact with them more often. However, unlike most animals, this will not cause them to breed.
Additionally, dolphins will swim to the nearest chest in a shipwreck or underwater ruin when they are fed raw salmon. If the chest in the nearest structure is broken, they will swim to another structure with a chest.
Fisherman villagers have 50% chance to buy 6 raw salmon and one emerald for 6 cooked salmon as part of their second tier trades, fisherman villager buy 13 raw salmon for an emerald as part of their third tier trade.[upcoming: BE 1.11.0]
