Wild-caught Pacific Sardines = 600% of your daily omega-3 needs or 1,500 mg per 3.5-ounces.
Wild-caught Alaska Salmon = 560% of your daily omega-3 needs or 1,400 mg per 3.5-ounces.
U.S. farmed or wild caught Striped Bass = 320% of your daily omega-3 needs or 800 mg per 3.5 ounces.
U.S. farmed Rainbow Trout = 240% of your daily omega-3 needs or 600 mg per 3.5-ounces.
