In brief: Best to avoid

It may be safe, but it's best to avoid fish oil if you're allergic to fish.
There are other ways to get omega-3 fatty acids from foods. Dr. Weill recommends fresh ground flax seed, walnuts, and walnut oil, although these omega-3 fatty acids aren't used by the body as efficiently as the ones in fish.
