> After I wrote my post on this, I read a post from Larry Hoover saying that mercury is removed from all of the brands. I may have been under a mis-impression after reading a claim that a certain fish oil did a better job of removing mercury.

Consumerlab does random analysis of products. I can't say that there are no fish oil products on the shelves that contain mercury, but Consumerlab didn't find any.

BTW, the Consumerlab write up showed that some products didn't contain the omega-3s shown on the label.

From: http://www.consumerlab.com/results/omega3.asp
"None of the twenty products were found to contain detectable levels of mercury [less than 1.5 parts per billion (ppb)]. "

Sorry, I earlier stated "fractional ppb levels" with respect to the limit of detection. It's actually 1.5 ppb, rather than the fraction of 1 ppb that I recalled it to be.
