Here are today’s five thing to know about anchovies:

  1. Anchovies belong to the family Engraulidae, and are found in temperate oceans worldwide, with large concentrations in the Mediterranean Sea. They are preyed upon by almost every predatory fish in their environments, and also by humans.
  2.  As well as being an ingredient in almost every dish in the “Apicius” ancient Roman cookbook, garum was used as a remedy for dog bites, ulcers, and dysentery! The city of Pompeii was famous for its garum.
  3. Domoic acid is produced by tiny diatoms called Pseudo-nitzschia and is a neurotoxin. It bio-accumulates in the food chain and if consumed, can cause permanent memory loss, brain damage, or even death!
  4. Many people consider Phu Quoc fish sauce to be the best in the world. Three tons of black anchovies and one ton of salt are fermented in hand made vats for at least a year before the first tasting takes place. The Knorr company has a licence to produce genuine Phu Quoc sauce, and markets 2,500 tons a year.
  5. Anchovies do indeed have teeth, described as “small and sharp,” in both the upper and lower jaws. Their diet consists of plankton and small fry of other fish.
