It is my understanding that sardines are very high in omega 3 and I'll often eat 10 in one sitting which seems like a lot of omega 3 and I do this a least once each week because they taste good. On top of this I'll continue to crave more seafood... (more)

Yes, I do take fish oil, in the form of krill and some salmon oil (less than 2g/day), but I also eat wildcaught fish 1-2x a week (salmon or sardines), and the occasional cod liver with its oil. The big danger with fish oil in capsules is of... (more)

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)

A good fraction of it is ALA, the omega-3 not given enough credit by paleo folks (because it's the plant-sourced omega-3).

@CD - Note that the darker your skin is, the more sun you need for vitamin D production, due to melanin antagonizing the process. The sun is a harsh mistress to black appartment-dwellers. :(
