Why do canned Sardines vary in prices?

yea.. there are some that come with olive oil, less salt, extra omega 3, chilli , etc. But for the same number of fish(4pcs) in a Can (425grams) packing, prices could differ from $1.20 to $3.90.

Question :

1) Are there different spieces of sardines (like pink Salmon or Chinook salmon) that makes it cost more?

2) Is price a good guide to nutritional value of canned Sardines? Let alone, all those : less salt, more spicy and olive oil gimmicks?

    Prices vary because of where the sardines were caught. The further away the more it costs to ship/import. Also, the quality of fish vary. Some will be denser and more firm in texture.
