Quick summary of the science  :

Omega−3 fatty acids, are polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs), it gets it's name, from the position of the double bond, which is  between the third and fourth carbon atoms from the tail end.  The three types of omega−3s  involved in human physiology are α-linolenic acid (ALA), found in plant oils, and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), both commonly found in marine oils.
