According to Fish Joy, they simmer their rich collagen broth for 8 hours to achieve the rich umami and full-bodied flavour of their soup. If you’re unfamiliar with collagen broth in fish soup, it may come as a surprise to you, as it can taste quite different from your regular fish soup.

The broth here is made from a mixture of pork, rather than fish bones to really amp up the collagen to the max.
