Difference between red salmon and pink salmon, in cans?

I was reading a recent post on canned salmon, and began to wonder about the difference between red and pink salmon. I guess that based on my long-time bias for "solid white" tuna, I always assumed that "red" salmon was the better quality, and "pink" was the equivalent of the cheaper tunas. But now I keep seeing the pink variety in boneless and skinless form, which is easier to work with. Anyone know the difference?
