A high consumption of n-3 PUFA's (whether by supplement use or because you're an Eskimo with nothing else to eat but fatty fish and more fatty fish) correlates quite strongly with an increase in haemorrhagic strokes.

Well....sure. Very high doses have significant anti-platelet activity.
That's why fish oil is one of the things you have to cut out before any kind of surgery.
