    They are very similar, cod liver oil has less EPA and DHA than the Fish oil.

    Fish Oil
    EPA 180mg
    DHA 120mg

    Cod Liver Oil
    EPA 110mg
    DHA 100mg

    Both are great but if you recieve a lot of sun exposure don't overdo the Cod Liver Oil b/c it has a lot of Vit. D, which you also get from the sun and a combination of both can cause Vit. D toxicity.

    Yeah, PwB is right. Cod liver is a rich source of vit. d and vit. a. The vitamin A form in cod liver oil can build up to toxic doses a lot easier than a precursor form like beta carotene. Stick to straight up fish oils. Good luck.
