What's wrong with salmon skin?

+4
−0

I bought a package of frozen salmon filet pieces in Israel; they'd been imported from Poland. The package reads, in part:

מטעמי הכשרות חובה לשטוף את העור או להסירו לפני השימוש.‏

In my own translation:

For reasons of kashruth, there's a requirement to rinse the skin or to remove it before use.

Why? What's wrong with the skin that isn't wrong with any other part of the pieces of salmon?

There are occasions in which the knife that removed the scales may not be kosher. This does not make the fish itself not kosher but requires that the immediate outside be removed. sabbahillel‭ 4 months ago

Like any library, this site offers tons of great information, but does not offer personalized, professional advice, and does not take the place of seeking such advice from your rabbi.
