This paper explores the implementation of Marine Stewardship Council certification in salmon fisheries in the US state of Alaska in the early 2000s, the growing opposition to MSC certification through periods of reassessment, and the emergence of an alternative Alaska certification initiative in 2011. It suggests that these shifts are rooted in struggles over third-party certification and labeling processes. It concludes that the ascendancy of the MSC sparks the emergence of new political and economic geographies of certification and ecolabeling in Alaska and other jurisdictions where place-specific and other initiatives vie for governance and market legitimacy
