Salmon will not attack or cause any harm to the player. Unlike most other wildlife, they do not react to Aloy's proximity or attacks.
When killed, Salmon will drop common items such as various types of meat but sometimes they will drop either Fish Skin or Fish Bone, both very valuable items that are useful for trading with merchants.
