Ecosystem: organisms and their environment: a localized group of interdependent organisms together with the environment that they inhabit and depend on.
We must think of our ecosystems both on land and sea. I am hearing word that reckless fish farms are destroying the natural waters in parts of our oceans. These waters are where the smallest of sea life begin. These small life forms support the next in line - moving on up the food chain to become gigantic sea creatures - the whale.
The krill are a tiny shell-like fish that are food for the whale. Krill seem to be a really good source of omega 3 oils. But they are different from most other fish. They have phospholipids (nutrients that make up cell walls). This is important for elements to go in and out of cells. Most other fish oils have triglicerides which is used differently and needed.
But in the krill, has astaxanthins as well as phospholipids making them quite special. Since astaxanthins are highly aclaimed antioxidants. We are getting a lot of help at the cellular level.
Astaxanthins can be purchased alone but when I find elements together naturally, it's a sign to me that I'll be getting more that science hasn't discovered yet.
I definitely feel they are more beneficial after comparing them with other fish oils.
There are krill fisheries now being certified by the Marine Stewardship Council for responsible fishing practices. So I no longer have to worry about selecting them for my source of omega's.
My choice is from the Vital Choice website. I've trusted them for many years as they are a very ethical company that works to maintain high integrity fisheries by bringing awareness up. We rely on companies to provide us with safe food and this company is one I treasure in the fishing industry.

Fish Oil Capsules
Here you see vats of fish oils to be packaged for sale. We are faced with a choice here.
If we continue our rate of consumption without thought to exchange, we will run out of quality food on this planet.
When considering fish oil supplements, support sustainable fisheries to do your part.
Other Life Forms Rely on Fish from the Sea
As you can see here, the grizzly bear takes his turn at fishing the streams where full grown salmon make their way back in fresh waters to lay their eggs.
We have salmon fisheries that are poisoning the waters with their unethical fish farms. The surrounding natural salmon fisheries will fade away.
We cannot support unethical behavior whether it be for fish as food or fish oil supplementation. It's time to put an end to irresponsible behavior. We do that with our purchasing power.
So What's Our Choice?
After doing a lot of research and experiencing a number of high quality products on the market, we discovered that high potency is not always the best choice. Our interest is maintaining a normal active body throughout life. We are NOT interested in curing a disease. We leave that to health care professionals.
I discovered a fish oil supplement where the oil was not broken down to the molecular level. Instead it was left in tact and the toxicity negligible. The array of nutrients included are tremendous in number.
The company providing this special fish oil supplement is, again... Vital Choice. They have been around for years and we are very happy to have found them.
Here's a picture of the Vital Choice salmon oil capsules.
As you can see, they are quite colorful, giving you the true color of the oil inside. That orange color is astaxanthin, a natural antioxidant pigment found in Pacific Coast salmon.
You can learn more about these

For Even More Nutrition and Omega 3's
If you like to eat fish, you can get even more omega 3 support. We get both the wild salmon and albacore tuna.
I feel by eating the Vital Choice fish once or twice a week, plus taking the salmon oil, we are getting a really good supply of nutrients that will ensure we are providing enough of the right fish oils for mental acuity as we age.
