I get alot of my 'tein from real fish. Tuna or tillapia mostly.

was always wondering, is a Omega-3 fish oil cap still needed if you eat fish on a daily basis anyway? if so why?

Eating actual fish is great but you have to consider the amount of mercury in them which fish oils don't have.

Fattier fish, such as salmon, tends to be higher in omega 3s. Not all fish are created equal.

Oily fish like mackerel, trout, sardines, albacore tuna and salmon generally have the higher amounts of O3's. Whitefish, like tilapia have some omega 3's but not as much. Since there is concern about high tuna consumption and mercury, you might be ok to simply take a fish oil pill as a supplement.

pretty hard to end up with issues based on the normal serves people eat.
