Lovaza contains fish oil and Omega-3 with fatty acids. Fish oils, or omega-3 fatty acids, are a special class of essential fatty acids (EFAs). They are so named because the first of the several double bonds occur three carbon atoms away from the terminal end of the carbon chain. There are three Omega-3 fatty acids.
