Yes, the amount of fish necessary for 1 fish oil supplement is indeed this high.


1 Testa capsule contains 450mg omega 3, thus 60 capsules contain 27g of omega 3.

1 herring on the Dutch market weighs on average 68g and contains on average 1.1% extractable omega 3. Thus 750mg omega 3 per herring.

If we then divide the 27g of omega 3 of 1 Testa supplement by 750mg of 1 herring one can see that 36 herrings are used.
