I am very much fond of eating sea food. Whenever my father goes on a trip abroad he brings some sardines cans for me. Although it does not smell very good but there is absolutely nothing wrong with the taste as it feels quite fresh and tasty. Last time when he brought sardines for me I was quite amazed and perhaps also got scared a bit. I could see the eyes of sardines wide open as I removed the lid. The can is still lying in the refrigerator as I did not feel like eating them. Before I even think of eating, I would like to know that are the sardines canned alive?

     Sardines, also known as pilchards, are several types of small, oily fish that were named after the Mediterranean island of Sardinia, around which they were once in abundance. Sardines are rich in nutrients but very low in contaminants, such as mercury, compared to other fish commonly eaten by humans. They are not canned alive, infact they are first grilled, pickled, smoked and usually beheaded before they are put in cans.
