    But if you read the legend...incomplete or worst choice means they simply didn't respond or complete the data accurately. The one doing the survey didn't actually test each producer of fish oil. At least that's my understanding.

    How is Costco brand "Best Choice" ? They have a HORRIBLE ratio of DHA/EPA. Seems like 99% of the people who replied to the surveyers got "Best Choice", what a retarded study

    Forget that website. If you want to rate things, go to consumerlabs.com

    I would hold in suspicion any ratings system that didn't rate NOW near the top- they're very highly respected.

    50% of the 1000mg should come from DHA/EPA, the more DHA the better. Compare NOW Foods Super EPA or Wonderlabs High Potency Omega to any of the cheaper brands and you can see the big difference.
