Here is something I found:

The article you cited says that linoleic acid is protective but the article above makes the case for linolenic acid as in salmon and flax seeds. I can't imagine that vegetable oils would be recommended for people with metabolic syndrome.

It is interesting that salmon which has less a-linolenic acid than cod liver oil raises the blood level of these acids more than cod liver oil.
Also smoked salmon is less beneficial than salmon.

I use canned wild caught sockeye which is very expensive but has more omega threes than other salmon. Possibly because sockeye feed on only plants. However, years ago I read a book in which the authors claimed that canned salmon was carcinogenic and canned tuna was not because tuna is cooked first then canned, but salmon is cooked in the can. I can't remember the name of the book and can't help wondering if they are right. Right food, wrong canning method?
