There are no other ingredients or additives in these dog treats. Just pure and simply dehydrated fish skins saved for AlaSkins by partnering Alaskan fish processing plants .
The skins are rinsed and placed on racks - either carefully hand rolled (like into the treats shown in pictures above), or the whole fish skins are laid out on racks for dehydration. Whatever stye your dog likes - hand rolled or whole skins - AlaSkins uses only WILD ALASKAN CAUGHT FISH. Nothing else is added to complicate your dog's digestive system
"The polyunsaturated fats in wild caught fish plays a key role in cardiovascular health and cell repair, and has been shown to reduce inflammation. Although omega-3s in fish are found in the fillet, the skin contains a fair amount of the much-desired fatty acid, as well." - The Better Fish

Detailed nutritional information of our Alaska wild-caught fish is listed on the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute website.

We are wildly opposed to the abhorrent and unsustainable practice of open-net fish farming. AlaSkins believes in supporting, using, and eating sustainably caught fish. Alaska's fishing industry still boasts the last remaining wild fishery in the world where wild salmon swim free in our massive bays, seas, and Pacific ocean. Alaska's salmon are allowed to naturally migrate until they find the same lakes, rivers and streams in which their life began, to spawn and then die, helping to continue the timeless, beautiful and magical cycle of life.
"There are 137 documented species that are dependent on wild salmon, 41 are mammals including orcas, bears and river otters, 89 are birds, including bald eagles, Caspian terns and grebes, five are reptiles and two are amphibians."- BlueFish.org
Instead of tossing aside unused fish skins that are filled with nutritional benefits, the whole fish is used, and the skins are turned into incredibly healthy, nutritious and yummy dog treats.
