Fish Gelatin

Anyone know where to purchase fish gelatin? I want to use it as a substitute for regular (animal) gelatin. I have been unable to find it in Kosher markets in and around DC or NYC.

I've experimented with agar agar and pretty much every other gelatin substitute, but it's just not the same. Also, with those, it takes a couple tries to get the proportions right because most recipes are written for gelatin. Especially when making marshmallows, nothing else will do no matter how you tweak it (well, in my 10 attempts so far.) I have had fish gelatin marshmallows before, and did not notice any fishy smell or any strange taste; they were just like any marshmallows. The makers of those marshmallows, however, will not share their source with me.
