There are 15 species of herring, the most abundant of which is the Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus).[citation needed] Herrings move in vast schools, coming in spring to the shores of Europe and America, where they are caught, salted and smoked in great quantities.
Canned "sardines" (or pilchards) seen in supermarkets may actually be sprats or round herrings.
Pickled herring is found in the cuisine of Hokkaidō in Japan, where families traditionally preserved large quantities for winter.
