    Default What fish?

    Morning,

    I am taking a Omega 3 fish oil supplement but I wish to replace it with eating more fish.

    Now, I have a short list what fish is most recommended for its highest omega-3 fatty acids (eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)) amounts:

    Arenque, Salmon, Ostra and Sardinas I know but what would be the Dominican equivalent for:

    Caballa ?

    mackerel (1.8%), lake trout (1.6%), herring (1.5%), sardines (1.4%), albacore tuna (1.3%), salmon (1.1%)
    My personal 2 favorites, lake trout (cannot find in DR) and salmon.......
    I believe Caballa is Mackerel......also never seen here

    You don't need large portions of salmon when complimented with a salad and fresh vegetables.......

    I use from NOW (Ultra Omega 3 / 500 EPA / 250 DHA) taking 1 with each meal.

    Thing is I want to cut down from taking all as supplements. It is also said fish is better than fish oil, so I want to give it a try.

    I live in a fishing town when in Canada... we are spoiled rotten.... more fish than one could imagine.
    When in RD , which is most of the time I take ''Moringa'' which is quite a lot of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory el ements.
    It grows in RD and really does what the I-net says it can do.
    Replaces the need for fish oil.
    Canned sardines, Paco fish canned Mackerel, and canned sockeye salmon all are rich in Omega3.
    Easy to buy at supermarket

    ISn't 'Baracco' (sp) skipjack tuna?

    Look it up and see if it fits your needs

    Sardines work - for sure

    Yea, I know but tastewise... then I would rather stick with the pills, lol.

    Cheapest source is canned sardines. Big plus is no mercury. No cooking.
    I use raw onions to kill the nasty taste in a tortilla wrap.
