Default Quality of fish oil?

I currently use the Seven Seas extra high strength oil as it is £5 a bottle where as Carlsons, which is normally highly recommended, is close to £20 a bottle.

It offers a high level of EHA/DHA but are there any problems with the addition of vits and more importantly fractionated veg oil compared to a pure fish oil??? Or are the quantities so minute it will not really matter? I take it in 15ml shots between once and three times a day.

Description:
Omega3 fish oil enriched with pure cod liver oil and vits D & E

Ingredients
Fish Oil Concentrate (Triomega®), Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin E, Vitamin D Prep. (Fractionated Vegetable Oil, Vitamin D).

Nutritional Info: per 10ml
Seven Seas Triomega® Cod Liver Oil Blend 9.2g
Providing Omega-3 nutrients 2800mg
of which EPA & DHA 2300mg
Vitamin D 5µg
Vitamin E 10mgTE
Energy (KJ) 340

Chris,
You get what you pay for. Carlson's has earned their reputation over a long time. I personally wouldn't trust a fish oil that had vegetable oil added to it, nor would I trust a CLO that had NO vitamin A and had vitamin D added. That means it isn't "real" CLO--real CLO contains naturally occurring vits A & D.

Then again, if it is a major cost issue, it's probably better that you get your fish oil than not, even if there are some sketchy ingredients.
