SARDINES: According to Beliefnet, the type of fish most likely used for the multiplication of the fish was the sardine. One pastor, writing on the miracle suggests that there was a certain fittingness to the use of sardines. “Two fish, about the size of sardines, possibly a salt-fish, which was plenty and very common at that time in the Sea of Galilee. A boy, five barley loaves of bread, and two salt-fish— three very insignificant creatures in the Jewish culture of that time—were instrumental in making this powerful miracle happen,” he writes he writes.
