The sprat, pilchard or sardine and shad are species of the same genus.
Sprat fishing boats Open In the 20th century, Dundee also had a fish dock.
Graham was ledgering a small sprat head section on a size 8 single treble.
The sprat cannot be confounded with the herring, as it has no teeth on the vomer and only 47 or 48 scales in the lateral line.
The sprat spawns in the open sea from February to May and is only occasionally captured in the ripe condition.
