Fish Maw - Sand or Salt?

At first I was shocked when I saw these pebbles like stuff in the fish maw that I bought from a vendor in Chai Leng Park, Butterworth. The first thought that came to my mind was the supplier might have put in pebbles into it to increase the weight because the fish maw alone is very light.
But when I investigate further, the pebbles like stuff is actually sea salt. Did they put it in to preserve the fish maw? This is the first time that I encounter this after buying fish maw for many years!
Have you come across this before?

Put salt u won't complain or have solid evidence they con u ma, put sand sure solid liao lor. Then you can throw the sand back into their faces. But salt, u just have to dissolve it, LOL. Pandai la they all.
