My fish oil gelcaps smell-- normal?

I bought some lower priced fish oil, and when I took them, I could literally taste fish for the entire next day. I tried twice with the same result. Then I read that could mean they're rancid, so I switched brands.

The new brand is very expensive. It is supposed to be of the highest quality. The first few times I took it, again, I could taste fish for the entire next day.
After 3 or 4 doses, I no longer have this problem.

However, I notice the bottle and capsules themselves smell strongly like fish. Does this just mean one leaked a little, or does it mean they're rancid? Is there another way to tell if they're rancid? Do all bottles of fish oil capsules smell like fish (when opened?)

Thanks.

Re: My fish oil gelcaps smell-- normal?

I find that all fish oil capsules smell. Try putting them in the fridge and se eif that helps.

But I switched to krill oil...same stuff but no smell. And the better quality ones dissolve in an hour so you don't get that fish taste or smell in you, either. Less mercury too because they are so tiny. Expensive though. I'm giving it a good try in hopes of it having some effect on my cholesterol and triglycerides. I'll know at the end of the month when I get my levels checks.
