    Not that I've ever seen. Along with others I've looked really hard for any exterior sign that a king is white, but without luck.

    Basically, if the gums weren't black I'd put long money that your friends' fish wasn't a king. But to know if it was white you would have to get out your knife.

      White gums = coho if the fish had spots ( unless it was a humpy, but those are BIG oval spots). The other possibility for light gums is an early chum.

      BTW you don't need to cut a king to determine if it is a white one. Simply lift up the bottom of the gill cover just enough to expose the translucent area at the apex of the collar. If you see red flesh thru the clear skin, then it's not a white king.
