Return to The Taxidermy Industry Category Menu
Menhaden a small very oily salt water fish. Oil being a residual product that will soak into the hide and lubricate the fibers in leather.
It can also be glycerin (for tanning reptiles)which is mage from animal by products.
Any residual oil lays on the surface of the hide, this is wiped away.
I think this is corret.
