Fresh tuna grilled rare is absolutely wonderful. Any other way of fixing tuna makes it akin to cardboard. I have stopped buying canned tuna for tuna fish salad. I buy fresh when on sale (usually "medallions" for $4.99/lb.) and poach to make fresh tuna fish salad. Once you do this, you'll never look back. While it sounds "expensive", 8oz. of fresh tuna makes a LOT of salad.

What's the story on canned tuna

Oil packed tuna is still available but hard to find. Of all the brands only Bumble Bee has oil packed tuna in my supermarket. I guess everyone is on a low-fat kick but water packed tuna is awful tasting.
As for fresh tuna, I too can't bring myself to eating raw fish but people say tuna is a great tasting fish. Maybe someday.

well Im think to each his own, My wife hates me for it. I like meat I don`t
like any meat raw or under cooked but that me. my wife likes all the different
typs of meat rare or bleeding, like tri-tip she goes crazy over that, I just as
soon have a piece of hamburger for beef. and I like for fish, i like cod or
perch, trout. I don`t eat anything raw unless it`s a vegetable. thats just
me. and if you want to anything rare or raw, thats all well and good. that
is the joy of cooking. take care and God bless....
I eat to live so I can live to eat
