Are they in the red meaty area or in the brown meat near the skin?

Maybe their all in the eyes or something and it's all a big scam!? (Just kidding)

But I always like to take time and focus on what I am eating. This is just one of the things I wondered

The highest concentration of n-3 is in the region near the skin: http://www.tuftshealthletter.com/expertawnserdetail.aspx?id=#225'

The Omega 3 is in the fat of the fish. The skin can be high in Omega 3 as well as the meat. When you cook a Copper River Salmon on the grill you will see the fat rise to the top. Other types of salmon as well. However Copper River Salmon has high fat content and it is very easy to see.
