  CALIFORNIA SARDINE
However the influential sardine industry lobby, with the support of the US Department of Fisheries, was able to present scientists to testify that the fluctuations in population were the result of natural phenomenon and not the result of any human impact.
With a decline in the population of the California sardine came an increase in the population of its primary competitor the anchovy.
Because the sardine and the anchovy are in direct competition for food the loss of the sardine species has resulted in an increase in the complimentary species the anchovy.

  Pacific Sardine: BC Seafood Online
While Pacific sardines can grow to 35.5 cm (14 inches) long and weigh between 100 grams (4 ounces) and 500 grams (1 lb), in 2001 the harvested sardines in British Columbia, weighed an average of 150 grams (1/3 lb) and measured an average standard length of 23 cm (9 inches).
To prepare a whole, round sardine for use, place in a bowl of cold water, gently rub off the scales with your fingertips, slice open the belly, remove the innards with your fingers and thoroughly wash the entire fish.
Pacific sardines are today managed under a Fisheries and Oceans Canada national policy on new and emerging fisheries which allow for small fisheries to take place and develop prior to becoming full fledged commercially licensed fisheries.

 Pacific Sardine   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The Pacific sardine is a pelagic fish found in the eastern Pacific from southeast Alaska to Baja California and the Gulf of California and also along Peru and Chile.
Sardines are filter feeders, preying on plankton (chiefly small crustaceans such as copepods) and other plankton.
Sardines may become more important as prey for many species as the sardine resource continues to increase.

 The Seattle Times: Business & Technology: One U.S. sardine plant left
GOULDSBORO, Maine — Sardine canning was once as much a part of Maine's coastal fabric as lobster boats, but the recent closing of a sardine plant in the coastal town of Bath has left only one survivor from a once-thriving industry in the United States.
Inside the plant, where the odor of sardines lingers and workers still pack the fish by hand, there is a bittersweet feeling about being the last sardine cannery in the country.
Sardines are a hard sell on young people, with the average consumer trying them for the first time between 40 and 50 years old, said John Stiker, an executive vice president with Bumble Bee Seafoods, which owns the Stinson plant.

 Sardine Run Greatest Shoal on Earth
The sardine run is much more than the simply numerous glistening shoals of sardines moving up the coast, for which the local tourism industry has coined the phrase "the Greatest Shoal on Earth".
Sardines rely on phytoplankton and other minute free floating aquatic animals called zooplankton for food, as do their close relatives the anchovies and herrings.
Sardines are typically found in water between 14 - 20 C/ 57 - 68 F. During the winter months of June and July, the penetration of cooler water eastwards along the Eastern Cape coast towards Port St Johns, effectively expands the suitable habitat available for sardines.

 What is a Sardine?
The sardine, or pilchard, is an ocean going fish well known for traveling in large groups, or schools.
Sardines are suspended in oil or brine to prevent their oils from going rancid, and therefore rarely found dried.
Sardines are often found close to the ocean surface, and are sometimes visible as a silvery mass, or as a large disturbance in the water if predators are attacking.

 OIL SARDINE FISH
However, it is a highly fluctuating fishery and the contribution of oil sardine to the marine fish landings in India is 1-33%.
There is little doubt that the shoaling of oil sardine, particularly of ‘0’ and ‘1’ year classes in the inshore waters is only for the purpose of feeding on the phytoplankton bloom.
The discolouration of water is mainly due to turbulence, seems to have an attraction for shoaling oil sardines and during the months of September-October or even to November, when skies are overcast with dark cloud, the oil sardine shoals seem to be attracted towards the shore.

 the sardine run   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A frenzy of human activity In early winter huge shoals of sardines, Sardinops ocellatus, leave their normal cold water habitat near the southern tip of the African continent to migrate northwards in a narrow band of cooler, nutrient rich water.
"Sardine Fever", as it is commonly known, not only attracts an assortment of marine predators, not normally associated with this region, but also creates a frenzy of human activity from netters to individuals wading into the water to collect fish by any means possible.
While the sardines are easy to find some days, on others they are notoriously difficult to see.

 Pacific Sardine
During the 1930s, Pacific sardines were the largest volume fisheries in the U.S. with catches off the central California coast often over 200,000 metric tons (mt) or more (Ueber and McCall 1992).
There was a collapse of the Pacific sardine fishery in the late 1940s which many attributed to overfishing.
Several researchers feel that the sardine biomass will be stable for at least ten years (Gauvin 2001).

 Pacific Sardine Resource Now Officially Recovered   (Site not responding. Last check: )
At the peak of the fishery in 1936-37, close to 800,000 tons of sardine were landed, and the population biomass was estimated to have been 3.6 million tons.
Since the onset of the recovery, the sardine population is estimated to have increased by 20 to 30 percent per year in the presence of a steady fishery.
At an interagency Pacific sardine workshop held in 1983, it was agreed that the sardine population would be considered fully recovered when it reached a million tons, occupied its historic range (Mexico to Canada), and all historic age classes were represented in the population.

 the sardine run - south african diving vacations
The sardine run phenomenon takes place every year off the eastern coast of South Africa, in the coastal waters dominated by the mighty Mozambique Current, which sweeps south from the equatorial Indian Ocean to eventually mix with the cold Benguela Current on the Agulhas Banks off the Cape of Good Hope.
Shoals of sardines of 15km long, three-and-a-half kilometres wide and 40m deep are spread over 1000km stretch of water, and offer the perfect feeding ground for predators, and thus offering great viewing of sharks, dolphins, seals, whales and spectacular photography and diving opportunities.
