I like how you thought this through and scored salmon for each portion of the criteria. However, since we are talking about Atlantic salmon i would have scored them higher. Having the yolk sac attached to their abdomens provides them with valuable nutrients for the earliest parts of their lives. This, along with removing natural predators, drastically improves their survival rates in captivity.
