.....Personally, I consume lots of salmon, olive oil (extra virgin!).....

Salmon is a fatty fish, it contains relatively more 'wrong' fats than other types of fish. The amount unhealthy fats in Salmon is hugely influenced by the type of food they ingest. There is a huge difference between healthy open-ocean/river salmon and farm raised salmon. Salmon farmers are trying to grow big salmon using cheap food that negatively influences the amount of good omega-3-fatty acids and the actual health of the animals. So there is a huge variation in the actual health of the salmon and the health benefits people get by eating salmon.

Advise: be picky about what salmon you eat! Sadly they are not all as healthy for you as they could be.
