The focus in this article is on the relation between consumer preference and objective description of the product profile of salmon. A consumer study of eight salmon products was carried out in Iceland, Denmark, the Netherlands, and Ireland. In addition, objective sensory profiling using a trained sensory panel was performed on the products, which varied according to storage method, storage time, origin, and species. For five out of eight samples, no significant differences in overall liking between the countries were found in the consumer study. However, the consumers gave the samples significantly different descriptions. There was a strong correspondence between the consumer descriptions and the sensory profile.
