Is. Omega 3 oil the same as salmon fish oil?

Pretty much. Krill oil and fish oil are the new snake oil, both are high in omega 3 fatty acids which are extremely fragile. Omega 3 fish oils reduce triglycerides by impairing the liver's ablility to make them. However the oxidative stress caused by fish oil actually raises LDL cholesterol. Some day we may use the phrase "this is just more fish /krill oil" or "here comes the fish/krill oil salesman".
Sort of. Omega 3 is a more scientific name for a type of fatty acid found in certain oils. It's good stuff! Salmon oil has some omega 3 in it in addition to other types of oils.

Omega 3 fish oil? What is it good for? Whats its benefits?

EPA. We all need two essential fatty acids in our diet but they have to be processed in the body to produce important metabolites that play a part in inflammation. Fish oil provides epa (eicosapentoic acid) that "dodges" the processing mechanism, thus providing a "ready made" metabolite that acts as an anti-inflammatory. This is very complex chemistry and is the simplest explanation that I can offer.

Much debated. There are many claims regarding the beneficial effects of fish oils, but there are few randomized blinded clinical trials testing these observational claims. Fish oils lower triglycerides, and are indicated to do so, so as to prevent pancreatitis, however no studies support this recommendation. At low dose they may have cardiovascular benefits, but recent data is less compelling than older data.
