I love Ortiz anchovies and am willing to pay a small fortune for them. What is the best canned sardine brand?

For domestic West Coast sardines I'd recommend Cannery Row Sardine Co. in Monterey, CA. A bright young entrepreneur started a business there by bringing sardines back to Cannery Row. www.canneryrowsardineco.com
Seafood Watch rates sardines as a "super green" seafood.
You mentioned Ortiz with good reason. Most of the best tinned Atlantic fishes come from Spain or Portugal. A good Portuguese label is Da Morgada.
Thanks for the recommendations!
Surprised you didn't mention Angelo Parodi Portugal Been around since 1888
Crown Prince. I love their wild caught skinless boneless sardines in olive oil. So delicious, meaty and healthful!

I have always relied on King Oscar, and they are still excellent quality.
Matiz are also very good.
DaMorgada Portuguese sardines are my favorite
I have made some sardine review videos on youtube:
If I can find this brand somewhere I will ad this one to the list.
