I hope I have chosen the proper forum for this question, if not please accept my apologies and move to the appropiate place. Now for my question. I have recently started to take a little flaxseed oil to up my omega 3 intake, and have noticed that it tastes very fishy. My question is since vegetable omega 3's taste fishy, is it the omega 3's in fish that give it its fishy taste? Is it the oxidation(rancidification?) of the omega 3's in the fish that causes it to get a stronger and stronger fishy taste as it is stored?
