Significant progress carries some evaluations towards the developments on seafood processing technologies and waste utilizing sector in recent years. Evaluation of wastes also has the potential to provide raw material for many industrial sectors. Evaluating the wastes also has a real potential for many industry sectors to obtain raw materials. The development of new products and commercially important of bio-molecules which have to be obtained from the wastes were important area for researches. Gelatin is used as a raw material for food industry and other industries, not only in our country but also in the world. Because of the growing demand particularly in Muslim countries hesitant considering alternatives to pork and calf sourced products are required. In the current study collagen which is used as raw material for many industries was recovered from carp scales (Cyprinus carpio).  Obtained collagen was also used to produce gelatin product and some physical (colour, odour) and some functional (gelling temperature, viscosity, gel strength) properties were compared with commercial calf and pork skin gelatins.
