Yes: Omega-3 fish oils are excellent supplements for many body systems, particularly the heart. Omega-3's do less to lower the bad cholesterol, but do increase the level of the hdlor "good cholesterol", and hence your good-to-bad cholesterol ratio. This in turn can lower your risk of heart disease.
