Canned sardines from the United States and Canada are actually Atlantic herring from Norway also known as the sprat. The classic American canning sardine, which is pacific or California sardine, seems to be nearly extinct, perhaps not surprising since it was canned at the rate of around a billion pounds a year in the late 1930s. None of these is the fresh sardine that shows up in our markets from time to time. Canned sardines from the United States and Canada are actually Atlantic herring from Norway also known as the sprat.
