Yes. Regular tuna fish usually has soy oil in the "broth." Low sodium tuna fish usually doesn't have the soy.

In the UK you can get canned fish (tuna, mackerel, salmon, kippers etc) in brine. The salmon is wild (well you would be, too, caught and kept in a can!) which we can't get so easily fresh. Just beware of anything canned in oil. Even if it says olive oil it isn't likely to be all olive oil. They add it to vegetable oil.

I'm a big fan of canned wild caught Salmon.

Like everyone else is saying though you need to do your research on the product. Be aware of the ingredients,fishing practices, and the manufacturing process.

Sometimes they line the cans to be BPA free, so I would look for those if you can, especially with products like tomatoes, which are acidic therefore draw chemicals in. Tuna, salmon, sardines, pumpkin, anything that you want that you have great difficultly finding fresh and the ingredients check out.

Along with the BPA in the cans. Another thing to watch out for is what else is in there with the product. Tuna is a bad offender for having some oils you would rather not consume in the can. Best rule of thumb is to avoid foods in the can, but I realize sometimes this can't be helped. As mentioned, do your diligence with the research and go from there.
