In brief: Yes

It is always best to get nutrients from whole foods when possible.
Fish oil is better absorbed from fish than pills. Plus sardines are a good source of protein, RNA and other nutrients. But a can a day is more than you need- about 3 servings a week will provide adequate levels of omega 3 fatty acids.
