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)

This (older) newspaper article says not much of the omega-3 was lost in water packed fish, more in oil packed fish since the omega-3 is oil soluable and more leeched out into the oil used in canning. (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).

If you don't eat fatty fish often, some supplementation is probably a good idea. A gram of fish oil per day over a week would add up to the total 2 6-ounce servings of salmon.
