Mangaluru: As people of the coast, Mangaloreans have always had a love for fish, with sardines being a common favorite among many. However, the recent arrival of Omani sardines taking the size and weight of mackerels seemed to have given the people here a taste for this variety, which is now a hype among the people of Mangalore. 

The fish has since recent times, been seeing a steady demand from the people of the city, not just for its size but also its taste, which cannot compare to that of the sardines in Mangalore. 

Though from Oman, here they take the name of Gujarathi sardines. However, the sardines obviously have to connection to the vegan state. The reason for the name could be the fact that the fish are imported by the traders of that place who transport them to the people here. 

In the end, we can say that these sardines have come to the rescue of the Indian fishing market which has recently been facing a crisis, with the problem of fish shortage. 

However, one challenge is that these sardines are not as cheap as the ones you buy here, with a crate costing Rs 200 to 230, while the same is available for just about Rs 150 when it comes to the Indian sardines. 

But then, all good things come at a cost, and so the same holds true for these king sized sardines that seem to be found in abundance in this season.
