The number of omega-3 capsules you need to take will depend on the brand you have and how much omega-3 fats are in each capsule. Provided you have no pre-existing heart problems, follow the recommended dosages listed on the label. Some fish oil supplements may require you to take 4 or 5 or more capsules, others 1 to 2 capsules daily.
