Watch a video of the making of the world's largest King Salmon.

Across the Puget Sound, October is a month to celebrate Salmon as thousands of Sockeye and Chinook swim up area rivers to spawn.

So it's only fitting that Alaska Airlines and the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute recently unveiled the world's largest King (also known as Chinoon) salmon, according to the AlaskaAirVids YouTube.com account.
