In brief: Many alternatives

Flax oil, hemp seed oil and chia seeds are excellent sources of essential omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.
However, many people do not efficiently convert the Alpha linolenic acid found in vegetable foods into dha, an essential omega 3 which is found in fish oil. Products like omegazen provide dha derived from algae so it might be wise to supplement with that or a similar product.
