Which brand is the best for canned sardines?

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

I have made some sardine review videos on youtube:


If I can find this brand somewhere I will ad this one to the list.

Thank you

I have always relied on King Oscar, and they are still excellent quality.

Crown Prince. I love their wild caught skinless boneless sardines in olive oil. So delicious, meaty and healthful!

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.
