Tuna breath is much better than cat food breath.

I too would never consider opening a can of tuna and expect to eat from that can for three weeks. No matter what you do with it. Buy small cans and eat it up right away.
Buy a small piece of fresh tuna. Sauté' in olive oil until fully cooked. Marinate it overnight in olive oil. Make sure it is covered in the oil. Pierce several times with a sharp knife or tines of a fork to allow the oil to penetrate. Next day drain and use as you usually would. You won't believe the difference from canned tuna packed in olive oil. Canned tuna is steamed first, then canned with the oil added last.

Off topic---- but in the same vein:

You can pet a cat
You can pet a dog
But you can't Petaluma

Only people from Sonoma County in CA will catch that.

Freezing tuna...will oil packed tuna survive better than water packed? There is still likely to be a little bit of either water or oil in the tuna, no matter how much I try to squeeze it out. Let me clarify...by survive I mean, will maintain more of its original texture.
