Is enteric-coated fish oil better utilized by the body?

Aside from preventing fishy burps, is there any significant nutritional advantage to taking enteric-coated fish oil supplements over their non-enteric coated counterpart? I’ve seen ads claim that the enteric coating helps to preserve the fish oil from stomach acid and bile until it reaches the small intestine - is there any scientific basis to this? Generally speaking, will the body utilize one better than the other?
