As to the sardine experimentation, I heard a piece on the radio about which fish are best to eat based on their health benefits and risks coupled with the environmental impact of fishing or farming them. Alaskan salmon, mahimahi, canned salmon instead of tuna, also, sardines and anchovies, herring and anything that looks like bait. It makes sense, you want to go low on the food chain. You can read the list for yourself here: Oceans Alive Best & Worst list.
As far as what to do with your sardines, there are recipes on the Oceans Alive site, but I found a salad on Epicurious that had the canned sardines marinated in lemon peel, oregano, red pepper flakes, lemon juice and olive oil. The marinade was good, but it didn't make me love sardines. Pickled herring, anyone?
