Did you notice the dandruff getting better with brushing?  I'm wondering if daily, sometimes more than once a day, is too much, but my brain is fried today so I may be way off-base.

Fish is a tough one for cats.  They tend to prefer it over EVERYTHING else.  The end result is often a "picky" eater.  You want to break the fish addiction ASAP.  IMHO:)
Try a non fish food and top it with the kibble that she likes.  Crush the kibble, so it is more of a topper.

Another idea, and this may be a totally lousy one, but how about using a little bit of juice from a can of the fish that she usually has a topper, and then over time reduce the amount of juice?

I bought the duck on a whim the last time I ordered Mazy cat's Cornish hens.

If I wanted to eat duck... looks good!

Ours eat ground duck with bone and all the ewie stuff.  It is pretty nasty looking, but the furkids love it!  I THINK the more gross something looks to me, the better tasting it is to them.  Silly7

She may have something else going on, but does she eat kibble?  I ONLY ask because... dandruff was no longer an issue with any of our cats, once they were no longer fed kibble.

Vet is basically useless unless I buy a bag of homeo products which she is pushing. Just as example - she did not know that the recommended hamp oil from the recommended source 40 miles down the road comes in 500 cc only. I was not supposed to drown the cat but give her 2-3 drops daily to see if it has an effect. Well, at 75$ and 80 miles I was not one to the experiment.

Dogs and cats cannot efficiently convert plant sources of omega-3 fats into appropriate amounts of DHA and EPA, so the best option for omega-3 fats is to use an animal-based source such as krill oil or sardines.

This time of the year her dandruff is bad again. Short hair, brushed daily at least once, heavy kneading when she is on my desk. Fish oil, eggs - not only no but forget it.

So far no luck but we will try harder and put the topping on the kitty food. She does not eat enough!

BTW I could not upload photos today.
