Colatura and Asian Fish Sauce: what's the dif?

I've read about colatura, Italy's liquid essence of anchovy. It sounds great, but I've never seen it on sale in any of the Italian specialty stores around Boston. I know it's available online, but before I take the plunge and buy it, I have to ask if and how it is different than Asian fish sauce, which is far cheaper and for all I know, may be pretty much the same thing, aside from the country of origin of the anchovies.
