I'm not sure about EVERYTHING that is in fish, however if you eat plenty of wild shrimp, and crab in season, and fish oil, and sea vegetables, that's probably good. In terms of omega-3s, if you are eating pastured eggs and pastured/grass-fed meat, there is a good amount in there too.
Shrimps are super healthy, so if you can afford it, and don't like fish, I'd ramp up your shrimp eating. (admittedly, even though I recommend this, we only eat fish about 2x a month, because of cost. ok, and preference, because I suppose we could afford canned sardines weekly, we just don't like them THAT much. we have a few dishes we like them in a lot though.)
In terms of getting the same stuff that is in fish in clo, I'm not sure that that is the case, however it is a powerful supplement.
