Sardine

Sardines are little fish in the herring family.  You may have heard the expression “packed like sardines in a can” to refer to something confining.  Sardines were once plentiful around the Mediterranean island of Sardinia and this is were they got their name.  Exactly how the “packed like sardines” expression came to be is unknown.
