This material is made from compacted fish scales which are heated under pressure, creating a solid composite. Everyone who picks up this material, once told it is made of fish scales, always smells it. It doesn’t smell of fish. It doesn’t really smell at all - the manufacturing process completely sterilises the scales, so there is no residual odour or essence of the fish remaining.
