This article is an analysis of the modes of governance in the salmon value chain and it focuses on inter-firm relationships and the information asymmetries and power relations between the firms (including unfair trading practices) and how these impact the distribution of value along the chain. The first part is a general description of global salmon aquaculture production and key actors. This is followed by an overview of the salmon chain case study and the regulatory framework and industry initiatives to establish and implement standards. Part three is the governance analysis of the salmon value chain according to the Global Value Chain (GVC) governance framework to identify the characteristic relationships between the different actors in the chain. Part 3 also includes responses of interviewees on their perceptions and opinions on these relationships
