The sardine is a very valuable food fish. It is found in the coastal waters of many parts of the world where the water is not too warm or too cold. The great sardine territory of the United States is off the coast of California. Every year thousands of tons of sardines are caught there.

Until recently not very much was known about the sardine’s habits. Now scientists have discovered some things about the life of the sardine. The female sardine begins to lay its eggs when it is between 2 and 4 years old. It is then about eight inches long. The female lays about 100,000 eggs, which float on the surface of the water .The eggs hatch in two or three days.

Sardines are a healthful food that contains many rich oils and vitamins. They are usually canned, and are eaten in salads and sandwiches. Some of the best sardines come from the coasts of Norway and Portugal. The sardine is used also as a food for cattle and chickens, and young sardines are used by fishermen as bait to catch other fish. The oil of the sardine is used in many ways.

some of her experiences in school and as a governess. Emily wrote Wuthering Heights, a tragic love story that describes the countryside in which the girls were brought up. Anne wrote two good novels, Agnes Grey and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, but neither was as great as her sisters'. All the sisters wrote under “pen-names,” calling themselves Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell, and for a long time not even their publishers knew who they really were.
