    Then start worrying when the human consumption increases. Until that, good old fish eat krill.

    They graze through the oceans, sucking in sea water and then expelling it through their baleen plates, which filter it. Then they swallow the tiny krill that they catch that way. This is all they eat, and it's all they can eat because of the unique evolution of their ancestors' teeth into baleen plates. So if we start harvesting krill, we're taking away their food. They'll start starving. We won't be any better than the Japanese, Icelanders and Norwegians, who kill them for their meat. Yeah I know those are big oceans. But we used to say the same thing about the Great Lakes. Have you taken a swim in Lake Michigan lately? Krill oil today, krill burgers tomorrow, then krill-based livestock feed on Thursday. And we'll start wondering where the whales went.
    DON'T DO IT!

    I hope they heed your warning

    Well, I have ran out of the fish oil supply, and considering what to get next. Here is an interesting study:

    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18460481

    Volunteers took fish, hemp and flaxseed oil and placebo for 3 months, and "The lipid parameters (TC, HDL-C, LDL-C and TG) did not show any significant differences among the four groups."

    So I guess it doesn't matter....

    Does that mean your looking for a quick solution, to a problem that may take years to develop? Also, you might want to review more information before deciding not to take any supplements at all. I do know that flaxseed oil goes rancid fairly quick (a month or two). It's better to get plain flaxseed and add it to a drink of some kind than the oil which is almost always rancid when you buy it.

    I believe a persons health depends more on what he or she does daily, such as taking proper nutrition and getting enough exercise. Yes proper nutrition is still a work in progress, but for the most part you will be doing something positive for yourself by following the current expert advice.

    Quick solution would be a week. After 3 months you bet there should be signs of effectiveness, or there is no point in taking them....
