Abstract: We conducted an open label pilot study to investigate the feasibility of providing fish oil supplements containing n-3 PUFA to children in a remote, primarily Indigenous, Northern Territory (NT) school in preparation for a larger, placebo-controlled intervention. We were able to detect significant improvements in achievement relative to age in a cohort of children generally described as underachieving over a relatively short period of fish oil supplementation, warranting follow-up in larger, controlled trials in this population.
