Verifying that Alaska's Salmon Fishery is Sustainably and Responsibly Managed
MSC provides independent, third-party certification of the management of the major Alaska commercial fisheries. Certification provides additional assurance and verification to buyers, markets, and stakeholders that seafood from Alaska is responsibly managed and sustainable.
The Alaska salmon fishery originally received the certification of sustainability from the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) in 2000. On April 23rd, 2019, the Alaska salmon fishery successfully completed the full 5-year re-certification under MSC. The current certificate is valid through November 11th, 2023 (see MSC website for full certificate).
