fish oil

I am very allergic to most kinds of fish.  I have heard that allergies are triggered by proteins.   If this is true would fish-oil from salmon trigger an allergy?  I cannot eat salmon.

I would ask a nutrionally orientated doctor this. If it were me, I would probably avoid the Salmon oil and use a different kind of fish oil. Carlson had a great one and I can tolerate it well, I have all kinds of allergies, but, this is good for me to take.
