There are many cultures & religions based in the Far East, the variety of fish caught and eaten is far different to that in the Northern Hemisphere. Likewise the selection of creatures farmed for their food is very different. The local leather industry uses the skins which would otherwise be destroyed as waste. G.H. Leathers, the UK-based distributor of several kinds of these exotic leathers underlines the fact that when we do not use this leather, no fish or creature would be saved.
This Nile Perch Leather is made out of the skin of the Nile perch (Lates Niloticus) and is available in different colours and finishes. The photos at the left show the Taupe and Blanc variations with a glossy finish. Applications are like ordinary leather, but note that this fish is a lot smaller than a cow.
