My new Japanese snack: can't just have one

So this is the third time I've seen these snacks, and while in Mitsuwa (in NJ) today I broke down and bought some. It's a good thing I thought to take a picture first because now it's all gone, a mere 10 minutes later. This is yet another something you can't have just one of.

I only copied what's on the label. I'm not sure what I ate beside that it's some sort of fish. It was rice paper thin, and yet once you chew it it feels like real food, not too chewy like dried octopus slices, or whispy like potato chips (nothing wrong with either one, by the way). It's so light and yet so satisfying. If I knew any astronauts I'd send them some... :) It's also pretty to look at, sort of like marbled paper, with some silvery/off black spots where I guess the fish eyes were.

Wish I had also picked up some with shrimp, which had orange marbling.

anyone can decipher what the Japanese name is: Okabe sonomanma Chirimen ?
