Good quality sardines should have the head and gills removed before packing.[2] They may be also eviscerated before packing (typically the larger varieties), or not; if not eviscerated they should be free of undigested or partially digested food or feces[2] (accomplished by holding the live fish in a tank for long enough that their digestive systems empty themselves).

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 (1130 words)
