This (older) newspaper article says not much of the omega-3 was lost in water packed fish, more in oil packed fish since the omega-3 is oil soluable and more leeched out into the oil used in canning. (more)

I don't remember where I read it but is the omega 3 somehow reduced when sardines are canned in oil? I'm guessing it's just that they drained them and the lost olive oil had absorbed some of the omega 3. If you eat the olive oil too is it just... (more)

You can eat the bones in canned sardines because they are soft. But in fresh ones, the bones won't be soft. Since you are in Asia, you might see if you can find out what the locals do with fresh sardines. I bet you can get some great recipes.

I would certainly eat the oil. I try to buy sardines in extra virgin olive oil. I have to read the labels carefully now though - lots seem to be canned in sunflower oil and I've even seen soy oil!

I've seen this mentioned on here but because many of us eat a lot of sardines I think it warrants discussion. Is the olive oil oxidized during the canning process? If so, would it be better to buy them in water?

I eat canned sardines all the time but you should be careful of the BPA. You can find some BPA-free canned sardines at Whole Foods, as well as some in glass jars. As Karen mentioned, be careful of the oil they're packed in.
