Source of omega-3 fatty acids

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid  (DHA) are long-chain poly-unsaturated omega-3 fatty acids abundant in seafood and other marine products such as oils from fish, krill and algae. Humans can only synthesize these fatty acids at a slow rate. Omega-3 EPA and DHA are prepared from marine oils, whereas DHA-rich products can be obtained from marine or from algal origin. Arachidonic acid (ARA) is an important omega-6 fatty acid in early life nutrition.
