What are Anchovies?

Anchovies are small, round, pelagic, oily fish, with a strong taste. Available all year round, Anchovies are generally caught via Purse Seine fishing in the North East Atlantic ocean, or the Black Sea. Anchovies tend to be a cost effective protein, rich in Omega-3 oil, therefore offering great health benefits. Taste-wise, alternative species to anchovies would be oily, strong flavoured fish such as Sardines or Herring.
