Kirkland has one that says one a day that meet the 600mg criteria. These are the ones Robb recommends not the $9 ones. These give me the burps that tast like fish. I can't do the one a days.
The 600mg ones cost twice as much for half as many they're 4x as expensive on a per-capsule basis yet you're only getting 2x as much omega-3s. They do have an enteric coating, so if burps are a problem for you the 600mg ones are probably a better choice. I've never had issues though even taking 20+ of the 300mg per day.

He mentions the enteric coating on the 600mg Kirkland but aside from that doesn't say if one is any better than the other on the purity side--in several other posts he says he's taking Kirkland but doesn't specify. My guess (though I could be wrong) would be that the 300mg and 600mg are the same quality and purity fish oils, just in different concentrations.
