How many of these fish caps to get 5mg

I have been taking 6 a day lately.
It is a Rexall brand Premium fish oil that says pharmaceutical grade.
It lists it like this on the bottle.

2 caps is one serving:
Total fat 2.5g
Fish oil 2400mg (2.4g)
EPA 432mg
DHA 288mg
Other fatty acids 24mg
Omega-3 720mg

What do I take to get 5mg daily of the good stuff?
Thanks

Can someone help me with this or should I just go to Dr.Sears and get the liquid?
thanks

That looks alot like the fish oil I use that I got from walmart its called spring valley. I use 6 pills to get to over 2grams(EPA,DHA) but if you want 5 grams you need to take 12 to 13 pills which is to many. Why do you want 5 grams?Do you mean (EPA,DHA) or just omega 3 fish oil in which case it would only be 4 pills a day.

I concentrate more on the EPA,DHA and try to get 2 to 3 grams of those two daily.
