Tinned Sardines (or Sardines) is a food item that appears in S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Lost Alpha.

A generic term applied broadly to any of various small, soft-boned, salt-water fish such as Sprats and young Pilchards and Herrings. These tiny fish are iridescent and silvery and swim in huge pools, usually near the water's surface. Fresh sardines are available on a limited basis during the summer months, usually along the coast where they're caught. In general, their fatty flesh is best when grilled, broiled or fried. In the United States, sardines are more commonly found salted, smoked or canned, either in oil, tomato sauce or mustard sauce. Some are packed as is, while others are skinned, boned and sold as fillets. The name is thought to have come from the young pilchards caught off the coast of Sardinia, which were one of the first fish packed in oil.
