Abstract

Due to the ever-increasing demand for leather products, alternative sources are constantly being explored. Of late, a new trend in using fish skin is gaining momentum, which may become an important event in the development of leather industry. Fish leather has a good tensile strength as any other leather. The process is highly cost-effective, as the raw material generated is generally discarded at fish markets.
