Dear DW
No, I don't think that having 1/4 of an avo and flaxseed oil on salad plus salmon now and then as excessive. All fish contain some omega-3 fatty acids, but salmon, mackerel, and sardines have higher levels.
You can also used Salmon oil capsules to boost omega-3. The avo will provide you with monounsaturated fatty acids which can also be obtained from olive and canola oil.
