Seafood Sustainability Ranking:
Anchovies are small silvery fish with blue-green backs. They usually never grow larger than 8 in.
Anchovies prefer the warmer waters around Portugal, Spain and France where they swim in massive schools.
Because of their strong flavour, anchovies are usually used as a seasoning rather than a meal. Anchovies are rich in omega-3 oils, calcium, and iron.
