Fish oil is the fat or oil that's extracted from fish tissue. It usually comes from oily fish, such as herring, tuna, anchovies, and mackerel. It sometimes can also come from the livers of other fish, as is the case with cod liver oil. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends eating 1–2 portions of fish per week because the omega-3 fatty acids in fish provide many health benefits:

  • It may support heart health
  • It may help treat certain mental disorders
  • It may aid weight loss
  • It may support eye health
