Respected SisterBrother
"Two carions are made Halaal for us; Fish and locust." (Mishkaat vol.2 pg.361).
Fish gelatine is perfectly permissible to consume.  It is an excellent alternative to bovineporcine based gelatine.
Allah reward you for using the Foodguide Service.  Allah give us tawfique to eat Halaal all the time. Please tell your friends and please pray for us too.
