Has anyone heard of the omega 3 acid/oil???. I believe it's derivde from fish oil. I was wondering if there are certain types of fish that have a higher concentrate of this oil, and if so, which ones?

Thanks for you help with this question.

RE: omega3???

You can get omega 3 from certain oily fish e.g. salmon or certain seeds e.g. flax seeds (or flax oil or Udo's oil - I take a tablespoon of udo's oil every day and sprinkle sunflower and flax seeds in my cereal)

I cut and paste this info from an article but there is lots of info out there on this subject, type it into a search engine and you fill find loadds of links:

The chart below gives the amount of Omega-3 fatty acids youd expect to find in a fish. About 20% of the Omega-3 fatty acids in these fish will be EPA, so you need to get about 6g of Omega-3s to reach the prevention level. This is equivalent to eating 250g of mackerel a week.

Fish (3.5oz, 100g, uncooked)
Omega 3s (g)

Mackerel, Atlantic
2.5
Herring, Atlantic
1.7
Tuna, Bluefin
1.2
Salmon, Coho
1.0
Turbot (flatfish)
0.9
Bass, striped
0.8
Trout, rainbow
0.7
Shrimp

Halibut, Pacific
