It is a small fish, very similar to the herring. If you would like to stroke it from its tail to the mouth, you would feel under your fingers that its scales are quite sharp. Its dorsal fin is located in a slightly different place.
It likes to swim near the sea surface, together with all of its family and friends. This way, they form a school of fish.
The sprat is a source of a lot of vitamins. What a valuable “Vitaminny”!
