One of the cheapest yet the most tastiest of our entire fish collection…Has soft/chewable bones, but what an amazing taste! This is one fish that brings nostalgia to most people in South India.
The humble Sardine though has multiple sub species of which the Special Sardine (for lack of a better name) is the best in terms of taste due to good amount of Fish Oil in it – Lots of Omega 3 to grow those budding brain cells.
Sardines are commercially fished for a variety of uses: for bait; for immediate consumption; for drying, salting, or smoking; and for reduction into fish meal or oil. The chief use of sardines is for human consumption.
