What brand of Fish oil are you taking now? I take Barlean's EPA/DHA. 783 MG of EPA and 400 MG for each 2 capsules. This is much more potent than other Fish oil capsules.

With the fish I eat each week and the stats above on the Barleans, do you think I should be taking 15 capsules a day? The bottle is 22 bucks for 60 caps. YIKES!!
No since your brand is much more potent you do not need to take 15. I take the GNC brand not because it's the best but it's what my family can do in the budget right now, military discount+gnc discount = $21 for 2 bottles of 360

For your dose it seems pretty simple, 2 capsules have a total of about 1200 mg's and you should be shooting for 5 g's per day so you need to take approximately 8-9 caps per day. 8 will get you a little under 5g and 9 will get you a little over.
