> I eat 5-10 lbs of wild fresh frozen salmon a month and that comes to only 1-2 grams epa/day

I don't know where you're getting your EPA data from, but my sources would indicate that 10 lbs/month salmon would not exceed 1 gram EPA/day, on average.

The numbers below are from USDA tables, giving grams of EPA based on 100 grams of fish. In 10 lbs. of fish, you have 45.4 100 gram portions of fish. With 30 days per month, just multiply the numbers below by 1.5 to get your average intake per day (45 portions divided by 30 days times mass per portion).

SALMON,ATL,FRMD,RAW 0.618
SALMON,ATL,WILD,RAW 0.321
SALMON,CHINOOK,RAW 0.788
SALMON,CHUM, RAW 0.233
SALMON,COHO,WILD,RAW 0.429
SALMON,PINK, RAW 0.419
SALMON,SOCKEYE,RAW 0.519
