What on earth is a Salmon Tenderloin?

I saw this the other day at a restaurant trying way too hard to be trendy. I laughed and asked the waitress what part of the salmon was the tenderloin. She explained that it's the piece of meat on the side of the fish. I nodded understandingly and went with something else.

Doesn't the definition of "loin" exclude all fish immediately?

Someone please enlighten me.
