Omega 6 ratio in Sardines

I have searched far and wide for this information and it is nowhere to be found. I'm looking for the omega 6 content in Crown Prince Brisling Sardines packed in water. On the box it does say there is 2g omega 3 per can, which is awesome, but I need to get my omega ratios to be 1:1. I've seen charts from other forums but the resource of the charts comes from nutritiondata.self.com which only has sardines in oil and other ingredients which will increase the omega 6 content. I've even searched Australia's http://archive.foodstandards.gov.au/consumerinformation/nuttab2010 but the omega content isn't there. I've also emailed Crown Prince and they don't test for omega 6. If anyone knows where I can find this information it would really help me.

Can I ask why you need the ratio you are looking for? (I should point out though that I am very much anti n-6 lipids)

I don't know, but I'm not aware any reason to be concerned about the omega-6 fatty acids found in natural (paleo) foods. If anyone knows of any studies to suggest otherwise I'd love to see them.
