Why is my Carlson's fish oil cloudy?

I'm nearing the end of a bottle of Carlson's fish oil. And its really cloudy, as if thicker, cloudier parts have been slowly gathering at the bottom. Anyone know whats going on? Should I continue to take it?

Yeah, though I've never shaken it.

Are you refrigerating the oil?

Yeah, it's probably normal if you're refrigerating it -- it can happen when the oil is in colder temperatures. If it tastes OK, then I'd say it's most likely fine.

Because it's cold.

Happens to mine, too -- I use SFH Super Omega 3. Starts out clear -- my theory is that repeated shaking before use every day kind of oxygenates the oil, and the bubbles make it look cloudy. Tastes the same. I don't worry about it.

There's nothing wrong with it, just shake it up before you use it and keep it in the fridge.

I always took it as oxidized fish oil.

Mine does this too. The question is what is the cloudyness and why is it thicker (ie not just cloudy)? I give mine a little shake each use and still end up with the cloudy stuff near the end of the bottle. I always drink it but have wondered...
