About everything I read on the Internet says good quality, purified fish oil capsules are the best source of omega-3, but good dietary sources I found on various websites include:
fish: 2-3 servings per week--cold water fish such as salmon, herring, American Shad, Pacific and Atlantic mackeral, whitefish, Pacific oysters, Atlantic sardines and trout.
Omega-3 per 4 oz. serving:
chinook salmon-2 grams
halibut .6 grams
tuna .4 grams
free range beef and poultry (because of their feed)
veggies: leafy greens, broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, romain lettuce, collard greens.
oils: olive, canola, flaxseed, soybean and walnut
walnuts: 1/4 cup offers 2.27g omega=3.
flaxseed (must be ground--body can't digest whole seeds) excellent source--2.4 grams per two tablespoon serving.
beans: one cup of soybeans, navy beans, or kidney beans provides between .2 and 1 gram omega-3
