An hour is probably long enough. Maybe even 20 minutes if it contains acid. I have been marinating salmon with no acid overnight which results in wonderful flavor. Acid changes the texture of fish, so less time is better.

Susan is right, depends on the marinade but 30 minutes should be good. Salmon has such a nice flavor it doesn't need to be over marinated
