As far as I know he has a shop in New York. He has two qualities of
isinglass. One is bleached the other one is the Saliansky isinglass
non bleached. I recommend you the Saliansky isinglass. Prof. Rober
Fuchs from Koln (Germany) mentioned that for bleaching isinglass the
Russians use chlorine bleaching compounds and that residues of the
bleaching compound may be found in the isinglass.
