Anchovy is a small fish with a length of 15 to 20 cm, which lives mainly in the Greek seas. The official name is "the engraflis egkrasicholos" (engraulisencrasicholus) and belongs to the family engraflides (engraulidae). Its name comes from a word meaning in ancient Greek, "proud" or "arrogant". The back and sides of anchovy is blue-green, while the belly is white to silver and shiny.

Its body is thin and long, the long snout and upper jaw protrudes. Its mouth reaches behind the eyes and bevel down. Its teeth are small and pointed. It has fins on its back, chest and a low abdominal area. Its tail is forked. These fish live in hot areas, and prefer to live in schools and prefers the surface waters in Spring and Summer. In the winter Anchovies prefers to stay on the seabed at a depth of 100-200 meters, because that's where the temperatures are milder. It feeds on tiny crustaceans and other fish eggs. When weather begins to warm up- so they can reproduce – they head for the coast to leave their eggs, which float with the plankton. During this period, we may see schools of anchovies, consisting of millions and sometimes billions of fish.

Anchovies are fished in the sea area of Kalymnos. The fishermen deliver their catch to our facilities within a few hours. There the women, wash them one by one fish, after they are filleted the traditional way, salted and then packaged in glass jars sealed with the vacuum method thus ensuring that the product maintains its superior product quality.

Anchovy is the most beneficial fish with lots of omega - 3, which is good for the heart and general blood circulation. It is also high in calcium and phosphorus, while it is also a good source of niacin. Furthermore, the low sodium content makes it a good choice even for those experiencing hypertension.
