EVERY FISH TELLS HIS STORY:
Sardines – Napoleon’s favourite food

Saving our seas it’s up to all of Us. EUROJERSEY supports WWF Italy in growing public awareness with the need to buy responsibly, with a preference for fish products in order to preserve fishing stock of our sea.

 

EVERY FISH TELLS HIS STORY

“They say I was the first fish to be canned, upon a request by Napoleon Bonaparte who wanted me to feed his soldiers”.

 

What we eat
We feed on plankton.

Where we come from
We are part of big, dense and orderly schools that remain in the depths during the day and swim to the surface at night to feed. We are found in the north-eastern Atlantic and the western Mediterranean.

What you can do
In the northern Adriatic and the European Atlantic, fish stocks seem to be in danger due to overfishing. This is why it is important to make sure the fish you are buying has the blue MSC label (Marine Stewardship Council).
