I need to know the DHA & EPA levels per capsule. Out of all these reviews no one even mentioned the most important information concerning this product. I don't care how much it lowered your triglycerides or how many exclamation marks you put in your review. I could also care less that it contains GMO soy. I need relevant facts only and it seems no one else is concerned about this most basic piece of information.

Exactly what I want to know - do you think calling Costco/Kirkland customer service would get an answer?

There are a number of different Omega 3 Fatty acids and they are NOT all the same. I want to know how the Omega 3s are broken down within the 300 mg total. I really do not think I will ever find out - just have to trust that these are a good source of fish oil. I guess a hunk of salmon does not have a label on it that has this information either :)

but it probably tastes a whole lot better! I would like to know the the actual MG - none of the brands seem to show this.

Very expensive brands do - I have been using Zone Omega RX with 400 EPA and 200 DHA in the same 1000 mg fish oil pill. Twice as much as the Kirkland (at least - because there ARE other omega 3s that are not EPA and DHA) Too bad they are about $50 a bottle. That is why I came up with the idea of rationalizing that a piece of salmon will not have a label! Kirkland pills are about 1/16 the price of the Zone, so I am all set to see if I can tell any difference. Eating that much fatty fish every day is out of the question - I do not trust the sources, it is very expensive and a pain to cook. SO glad I can take some pills instead. Oh - and if you keep them in the fridge, then you don't get those nasty burps.

This is from a Kirkland label? Kirkland makes 2 or 3 different kinds of fish oil pills, and the prices reflect the concentration/information on the label, I suppose. The ones I bought are the least expensive - 400 pills for I think $8.99 regular price, and they had a $3 off per bottle coupon out last month. Dirt cheap! I noticed that they had higher priced bottles with less pills in them. HAS to mean higher concentration of the "good stuff" right?
