This study aims to explain the effect of preservation with NaCl and KCl on the quality of the Pufferfish skin. The material used in this study was 100 pufferfish skin tail. The research was conducted in June to August 2015 in the Waste Laboratory of Polytechnic ATK. Pufferfish skin preservation is done by soaking the skin of Pufferfish in each saturated NaCl and KCl at a concentration 200Be and preserve skin blushes Pufferfish with salt NaCl and KCl, for four weeks. Results of the research were analyzed by independent T-Test. The results pointed that there was no difference in the levels of NaCl and KCl in solution and sow salt. The longer the curing time, the levels of NaCl and KCl in the skin of Pufferfish is increasing, conversely levels of NaCl and KCl in a saturated solution decreases. Conclusion of this research is NaCl and KCl can be used for preservation of Pufferfish.
