Heavy metal ratings of various fish oils?

Answered on August 19, 2014

Is anyone aware of any third-party tests done on the various fish oil products that list how much mercury and such they have?

Right now I use Carlson Very Finest Fish Oil, and I am completely in the dark about this - even though I've read somewhere that they molecularly distill it. I tried emailing them about it and got no reply.

So I guess I'm just wondering if this is all guesswork, or if the information is out there already? Any thoughts?

Thanks for the link. I see that it covers BPS and dioxins, but what about mercury? Or is that covered under the "Complies with all CRN/GOED/WHO testing categories" heading?
