I'll soon be moving to Dibba, Oman where I'll live for the next seven months. I've lived there before so I know what foods are available. It's easy to buy Australian steak at the grocery store- but I'm sure its not grass fed. Chicken, lamb, eggs, and duck are always stocked in the grocery store. I'll take a bunch of organic coconut oil with me and I can buy lurpak butter there. I won't be able to find the brand of fish oil I take- so far the only brand that doesn't give me insomnia- and it's pricey so I don't really want to buy 7 bottles of it to take with me. There is a pretty awesome fish market in Dibba- where I can buy fresh whole fish and have it cleaned right there. My plan is to take my vacuum sealer which would enable me to buy a whole fish and eat it over the course of several weeks. This allows me to get the Omega 3 levels to balance the beef and chicken I'm eating. I'm pretty concerned about mercury levels in the fish- and I would also like to know which fish have the most omega 3 bang for the buck. Here are the types of fish I remember seeing or have bought before:
Basically mercury toxicity from fish is a pile of garbage..
Mercury has a high binding affinity for selenium.. guess what else is present in quantity in almost every fish? Selenium.

My lab has studied the health-beneficial properties of omega-3 fatty acids in fish for about 35 years.
All fish, on a global scale, are heavily contaminated by the toxin methyl-mercury.
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recommends no more than two (2) servings of fish per week to healthy adults.
This is because, although the omega-3 fatty acids in fish are good for you, eating more than 2 servings of fish per week will increase your methyl-mercury intake and the toxicity of the methyl-mercury will override the benefits of the omega-3 fatty acids.
Another interesting fact on the content of omega-3 fatty acids in fish:
Today, most commercially available fish around the world are fish farmed. On fish-farms, fish are typically fed with corn pellets. Their normal food is omega-3 rich fatty acids from small marine organisms and plants from which the fish normally concentrate the omega-3 fatty acids.
However, there is very little, if any, omega-3 fatty acid in corn pellets, and therfore very little omega-3 fatty acid in today's commercially available fish.
We have thereby created a 'Frankenfish' - a fish that looks like a fish but has none of the health benefits.
