Salmon oil is wonderful stuff. I don't know doses too well for cats but I give Brody a fairly high dose to help combat any potential skin problems that she grew up with. She gets 2000mg per day (2 of the 1000mg caps). They make liquids in pump bottles for dogs and cats and measure out how many pumps per day for certain weight ranges. I've also had 500mg caps before and don't know if they come any smaller. A few drops a day might be ok.
Grizzly Salmon oil is very highly praised from a large amount of people. I just don't like dealing with liquid if I can help it. I like the capsules because Brody eats them whole.
Also - the fish oil itself is very beneficial (to pets and people). Usually, its high levels of certain contaminents (like mercury I think) in fish that make it bad... plus fish itself isn't a "natural" source of food for cats and dogs. Fine in small amounts but not as a sole food source. Fish oil can (and should IMO) be given daily without those worries.
