You don't need any salmon oil. Simply buy wild salmon and eat it (or in cans).

danno, unfortunately, the krill oil business is almost a monopoly. There is one firm in Canada that effectively is the only mass volume producer, and all of the name brands you buy in a store are in fact just relabeling that one company's oil.... (more)

You are better off eating fish anyway, quit torturing yourself. I am a firm believer that fish oil supplements are best for those who don't want to eat much fish.

Will fish oil or something like that break your fast?

Depends on the purpose of your fast. If it's to rest your digestive system and the organs involved, I'd skip it. If it's simply weightloss, I don't think it would hinder you too much.
