What's the difference between sprats and sardines?

meinNYC | Nov 7, 2011 08:20 AM

We just had a can of smoked sprats from Russia and were wondering why they tasted so differently
from the sardines in the supermarket. Are sprats just sardines that have been smoked or is a different fish or is a sprat a baby sardine? Please explain.... thanks
