If not, what food is cheap that contains the this kind of fat?

Canned mackerel. 68 cents a can at WalMart. I get 4 servings per can (16oz can). Pretty rich in n-3 fats. If I remember correctly, 1.9g n-3 (omega-3) fats per 100g (roughly 3.5oz) serving.

I'd probably go with salmon if you're looking for fat content.

J, what ur budget?
a 30 day supply of fish oil caps is 7$
if you take half the dosage (1.5g epa/dha) you can take it for 60 days....

thats about the cost of about 5 cans of tuna...

Just go with Krikland (Costco brand), which geoff is probably referring to. It is pretty cheap.

Getting a bottle of oil would be even cheaper?
