In general, I'm against excessive fish oil consumption (and 87 pills is way too excessive).
I wish I remembered the blog, which discussed a clinical study where doses as small (large really) as 3 grams of fish oil were correlated with higher total mortality and cell mutations than smaller doses like 1.0 gram. I thinks it is important to remember that isolated compounds (especially ones that can easily go rancid like fish oil) are not cure alls or even necessarily as effective as the compound when found in food.
A great post about fish oil vs. fish itself is over at the Perfect Health Diet blog where they say this,
In fact, clinical trials have compared
eating fish to eating fish oil
capsules. Fish consumption has an
excellent record in a number of
clinical trials, but fish oil capsule
supplements do not.
In the Diet and Angina Randomized
Trial (DART-2), 3114 men with stable
angina were followed for 3-9 years.
There was a control group, a group
advised to eat oily fish like salmon,
and a group taking 3 fish oil capsules
daily. There was a significant
increase in sudden cardiac death among
the subgroup taking fish oil capsules.
In addition such other paleo-luminaries are relatively anti-fish oil consumption such as Kurt Harris over at paleonu.com.
I know this answer may seem biased, but I am assuming that the OP has read and hear the arguments in favor for Fish Oil by Robb Wolf and the Whole 9 (obviously) and others.
I do not supplement fish oil as I prefer to avoid supplemental "drugs" and instead focus on limited all PUFA consumption and work on ratios within this by eating fatty fish.
