In addition, they are widely used for preparing isinglass which finds application in industrial processes such as wine and beer breweries and preparation of cosmetics. Over the last few decades, global demand for swim bladders has increased exponentially which are sourced from countries with a fairly good production of fishes that are most sought-after for their swim bladders.
