Anyone know the approximate amounts of EPA and DHA the Inuit consume(d)? I know it's way up there, but just wondering if there's some good data on the numbers.

Average American consumption of EPA/DHA (from fish) is 0.1-0.2g/day.
Eskimo study shows they consume about 20x more Omega-3 from fish than Americans in lower 48 states, meaning 2g-4g/day. Most fish oil supplements fall far below that threshold. In order to mimic the Eskimos in the study, you would need to take more than the typical Omega-3 supplement serving (depends on supplement).
