Salmon at Whole Foods -- a new record!

Dropped by WF yesterday to pick up some frisee (which was pretty mediocre, as it happens) and strolled by the fish counter. Prominently displayed was wild Alaskan king salmon -- at $32.99 a pound. Now I'm all for sustainable fisheries and am well aware of the negatives of salmon farming as its done in Chile (and probably elsewhere), and i have no problem paying up for quality products. But $32.99 a pound for salmon??? Must have been flown here on a Gulfstream. It also occurred to me that the retail turnover of said product at that price is likely to be low, so its probably going to sit around for awhile.

Anyone here at buyer at that price?
