Are more fish and shellfish harvested to make Tidal Vision’s products?
No, we only use the byproducts from already harvested fish, crab and shrimp. Furthermore, we only sources these byproducts from certified sustainable fisheries that are strictly managed to protect against over-fishing.
Do your products smell like rotting fish?
Our products do not smell like fish at all since all odor producing oils and particles are removed in the tanning and/or manufacturing processes. Our salmon leather smells very similar to cow leather, since we use many of the same tanning oils as in common cow leather. Our Chitosan products do not smell like crab, and in fact, are odorless fighting since the polymer naturally inhibits bacteria and microbe growth.
