I just opened a can of Starkist solid white albacore last night and it wasn't mushy at all. I bought an 8-pack of the Costco brand but haven't opened any, yet. I was told they have excellent solid white albacore.....time will tell.

I usually buy whatever brand that is on sale when I'm shopping. Typically Bumble Bee or Starkist at our local grocery stores. My daughter prefers the solid albacore packed in water variety, usually priced at 99 cents a can on sale. I personally like fresh tuna steaks for tuna salad, but they're butt load more expensive.

I love Italian olive-oil-packed tuna as well, but I only use it when it's attributes will really star - like in a composed Nicoise Salad - rather than in a Tuna Melt Sandwich.

I looked for the fancy brand mentioned (Genova something) when I was shopping today. No dice. And I was at a "real" grocery store, not wally world or my town's grocery store.
Is it regional? Ahhh, or maybe in the ethnic aisle?
