Little fish in a can.
In-game description

Tin of sardines is a canned food item in The Long Dark.

Information Edit

A tin of sardines weights a mere 0.10 kilograms but consuming it yields 300 calories. Unlike other canned goods, a tin of sardines can be easily opened without a can opener, hunting knife or hatchet since it has a pull-tab opener.

Eating a can of sardines will also slightly quench thirst, and it is a relatively energy-dense food item. However, it also has a moderately high chance of conferring food poisoning.

The tin of sardines is packaged as a product named Last Resort Sardines, an apparent jab at the humble, nutritious, yet much-maligned little fish.
