Making Sustainable
Seafood Choices: Sardines

Not only a tasty fish and a good source of fatty acids, sardines are a great choice for a sustainable seafood. They reproduce quickly and are harvested with purse seines, a non-invasive form of fishing that doesn’t harm ocean habitats. Since sardines are low on the food chain it also means that they are exposed to toxins in the ocean for less time – making them better for you eat!

Toss them with olive oil in pasta, in a green salad, or try them as a savory snack or appetizer with garlic aioli sauce – recipe below! Aioli is a sauce from the south of France that is made from garlic, egg yolks and olive oil. You can add herbs and spices if you’d like to spice it up!
