There's no problem feeding raw fish to cats. I wouldn't feed it exclusively though as this can cause a Thiamine (Vitamin B1) deficiency. It's like anything else when feeding raw food. It's all about the balance.
Take liver for example, you wouldn't feed liver everyday or you'd end up with a kitty with a Vitamin A overdose. So you feed it a couple of times a week. You wouldn't feed exclusively chicken either, you'd throw in some other type of meat source to balance all those wonderful vitamins that chicken may not produce enough of. Everything in moderation.
Salmon is especially wonderful due to the oils and omega 3's which are wonderful for kitty's skin, coat and heart! Pick me up some salmon! I can hear my furbabies licking their whiskers from here!
