Yes Salmon is a good source. Canned Salmon is said to have more Vitamin D than the raw.
Canned 130 IU (33% DV)
Raw 87 IU (22% DV)

From a table from the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University

VitaminD

This is probably the best as it gives differing amounts depending on what type of salmon.

Even the smoked Salmon I bought shows 0% Vitamin D on packaging. Which I find very strange.

That item comes from the USDA database and they don't have Vitamin D listed for it. But Vitamin D is in fish and fish-liver oil, but unfortunately we don't have a specific value to include in those at this time.

I am trying to track my Vitamin D through the nutrition tracker. I eat a fair amount of salmon and I have read that Salmon is one of the major sources of Vitamin D. Yet both on this site and other sites Salmon never had Vitamin D in its nutritional content. The closes I have come to was a not that said under Vitamin D - indicates a missing or incomplete value. My theory is that it is not included because the Vitamin D can be variable depending on the source of the Salmon. Wild vs farm raised salmon can have different percentages or Vitamin D. Is that in fact the case?
