    Is anyone familiar with the Skinless & Boneless Sardines in Olive Oil (Parve) available at Trader Joe's?


    I love them, and just want to make sure they're safe.


    I know that sardines are lower on the food chain and consequently not likely to have too much mercury. But it doesn't say on the box that these sardines are wild. If they are farmed, how big of a problem is it? Do they feed corn to sardines in farms? I would hate to give them up. I cannot seem to be able to find wild-caught sardines.

    I love them too. Although I often partake (like just now) of the with skin and with bone type. I only buy ones with OO. I am not aware of any sardine farming. I a have always assumed that they are wild caught. I am also been led to believe that small fish don't accumulate much heavy metals.


    I enjoy them frequently.

    It's grandma, but you can call me sir.

    I got "Crown Prince" wild-caught sardines and salmon from the local co-op 2 weeks ago. I just checked, looks like it's available in Whole Foods in Chicago.

    There are no cultivated sardines to my knowledge.


    They are swimming around, in fact, outside my window.


    Excellent food source, watch out for the calories if that is of concern, even w/o oil packing.

    We eat sardines often! I also only buy the ones with olive oil.


    I make a dressing out of one can. I just mush them up, add a bit apple cider vinegar, mustard, fresh dill. If needed I add a touch more olive oil and toss in a green salad.

    I love herring.


    Eat sardines here and there, but still can't develop a taste for them.
