I've not taken fish oil in over a year....but eat more herring/sardines.

I find it interesting that fish oil is like a 2:1 ratio for EPA-DHA.....yet sardines/herring are more 1:1 ratio.

I would do the herring or sardines, but after taking them for a long time they started to not sit well with me, thus my particular interest in the algae DHA (supposedly no fish-burps with this stuff either, so compliance is much better).

I have been interested in algal DHA supplementation since a seminar with Mat Lalonde. While looking for a particular product I have found a high percentage of the algal DHA supplements also have high oleic sunflower oil which is an extremely potent source of Omega 6s if memory serves. Anyone know more about this? I would love to find a less expensive product than the Thorne version but thought it is probably counterproductive if it is full of Omega 6s as well.
