Roe in Canned Sardines? Is this weird

veebee | Jun 24, 200605:53 AM     13

Ok, Opened a can of Porteguese sardines and was happily eating away until a little pocket of eggs popped out of the belly of one of them and it looked very very much like a roe sack from a shad I once knew. Veins and little eggs and all. I have NEVER seen this in a sardine. Is this unusual or what? I tasted it and it tasted fine, but not particularly rich and delicious and the texture was most definitely dusty, grainy and unpleasant. Anyone else ever experience this? Here's a photo of the (sack?) and packaging.
