Canada was a signatory of the Kyoto Protocol on global warming in 1997, which bound member nations to reduce carbon emissions to 5% below the 1990 levels by 2012. As a consequence, most tanneries in Canada were forced to close. Among these, in 2004, was the tannery that we had been using in Eastern Canada to manufacture our fish leather. As a result, we have a stock of between 200,000 - 300,000 fish skins that we are offering for sale. These skins had been selling at prices up to $14.95 per skin. We are offering these at a fraction of this price.
Most of our stocklots are carp, except when specified as perch, salmon or mixtures. By colors, we are offering 3 kinds of stocklots:
- Colors variety stocklots: We will fill the quantity with at least 15 - 20 color varieties (5 - 10 color varieties for the perch, salmon, or fancy finish stocklots). - Color group stocklots: We will fill the quantity with 1 or more variations for the color, currently in blue, red, green, brown or light colors. - Specific Color Stocklots: We will fill the quantity in a specific color.
