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

Pink Salmon, canned 3 oz 530 IU 13.3 mcg

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?
