The same: Both are making the same claim but different formulations will supply more of the actual active ingredient, so you must read the label carefully. Better yet, eat fish! Mackerel is the best. Salmon is also good.

Many ones: Most supplements are now pretty carefully screened for toxins from bioconcentration and such.
You need to look at the epa and dha components as well as how many capsules to take to get that amount.
No particular type is superior, to the contrary of the opinion of every fish oil capsule seller.
