fish oil

What is the shelf life of fish oil capsules? Will putting them in the refrigerator make them last any longer? I know the fish oil we consume should be as fresh as possible but this is not always possible. Thanx.

i am not sure, but i have been told to keep flax oil in the frig to keep it fresher, so i suppose that putting the fish oil in the frig could not hurt it.

my caps say they last for 4 years. I keep 'em in the fridge anyway.

Bite on one every once in a while to make sure they haven’t gone rancid.
