I have never had a side from Costco which didn't have a single scale on it
Can't comment on that much. I've seen Salmon sides without skin at Costco.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

all salmon gets its pink color from its food. It's the beta carotene. They have tried feeding carotenoids to other species but the pink color didn't take. Therefore the OU still maintains that salmon (and other related kosher fish) are treated only fish receptive to the beta carotene and as such permit these fish without skin

Does it logically follow that you can buy raw salmon from any store in any country?

Yes unless there is a concern of taste from other fish contaminating it

Wrong.

1. The fillet sold by Jetro/Restaurant Depot comes WITH scales. AFAIK that's sufficient.

2. Paging @TimT we've discussed the color issue at length a while ago on the Kashrush master thread IINM, and after reading the sources quoted there, it does seem like the color is a siman muvhak. There's only one non-kosher fish (can't recall what it is at the moment) that could get that color, but that fish is naturally larger, and at the size of salmon would not be edible (or commercially viable).

Going off topic.
Is Restaurant Depot a store worth visiting?
Any good deals there?

It's a restaurant/grocery wholesaler. You need to have a resale or tax-exempt certificate in order to shop there (though they don't put a person's name on the card, only business name). It's definitely not a retail shopping experience.

I go there mostly for salmon fillet, pint and quart disposable plastic containers, better quality disposable spoons and forks in bulk, bulk frozen fruit, and before Pesach for some fresh fruit and vegetable shopping (when I'm there anyways year round, I might pick up something.

Just went to Bingo for the first time. Order total was 684. Exact same order in Moishe's was 812. Not a bad savings.

Exact same? Their product sizes are different than anything available in any of the other places. So are you sure? Also, Moisha's is about 10% more than KRM so its closer if not the same as KRM.
Fair warning - Any PMs sent in response to forum posts are fair game for ridicule in public.

Yes. Anything that wasn't the exact same (paper goods) I left as the same price in this equation.
It seems lower cost products are consistently 20 cents cheaper.

Also wide, clean aisles, friendly management, huge selection (of nosh), great produce, quick checkout, and decent amount of parking.   :)

The self bagging/boxing plus charge for boxes was a little annoying though, although understandable.
