Do you know where your fish oil comes from?

Article: A Fish Oil Story

Great opinion piece on how the industrialization of harvesting fish oil has drastic consequences on the Atlantic ocean. One more reason to aim for higher quality fish oil from reputable sources. Being certain your fish oil is free of PCBs and mercury is essential, and I think we have to look at the sustainability issue here as well.

The Life's DHA product that is derived from algae is starting to look better and better. I would also advocate for Vital Choice's Salmon oil and am waiting on confirmation from Carlson's on my fish oil of choice: Carlson's Lemon Flavored Fish Oil. They state their fish are from Norweigen waters, but their home base is in Illinois, so I will follow-up with a post when I hear back.
