Pressure variances

Our local cooperative extension service recommended canning salmon at 11 lbs. for 100 minutes (1/2 pint jars). The pressure cooker is determined to stay at 15 pounds. Does that matter?

answer:

As long as you don't use less pressure than is recommended you should be fine.

If you were to be using a weighted gauge canner then you would need to use the 15 pound weight. So I would think using that pressure on your dial gauge pressure canner should be ok.
