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!
