    Only if you're going to bread and fry it.

    My mother used to bake mackrel in milk (I guess to mute the strong fish oil taste) but otherwise I've never heard of soaking fish in milk. Oh how I hated that mackrel!!

    I know guys who will marinate shark, ray, and the big humbolt squid in milk to help eliminate any chance of harsh salty/ammonia(y) taste. But I find that if the fish is dressed properly and iced immediately it's not a problem.

    I have not heard of anyone soaking salmon in milk.
