How do you adjust your O-3 supp dosage when you eat fish on a given day? I'm looking to take 3g total of O-3 daily from food and supp. Thanks!

If you're eating a decent portion of fish then you could skip the omega 3 pills. You'll get just as much or more from the fish.

You can get 3g per day easily and maybe even cheaper than the supps. 100g of sardines has almost 2g for example

depends on the type of fish you are eating. Wild salmon is very different from flounder.

Here's a chart to give you an idea.

I'd rather take supps and eat fish once or twice a week as there's pollution and metals in the ocean these days.

I usually skip it on days I eat tuna, salmon or sardines. Good read here, read the part about farm raised actually hving more toxins:
