You might want to contact Difco.  They prepare fish peptone on bulk order (50
kg batch) for companies.  Sometimes, they will have a couple of extra kg that
they can sell you.  At one point (depending on interest) they were considering
putting it in the catalog, but they haven't done it yet.  I have used this
fish peptone, and it dissolves to yield a clear solution, unlike some of the
others that I have tried.  Other manufacturers like Oxoid (UK) may also have
similar peptones.

Good luck.
