Is this tuna better than regular tuna? Its on sale this week for only slightly more than regular tuna and wondering if I should get a bunch.

While albacore is a biological type of tuna, "light" tuna may be biologically classified as skipjack, bluefin, yellowfin, and tongol. All types except tongol may be labeled "chunk light" or "solid light", while tongol may only be labeled "chunk light". Our recommendation: when you choose to eat tuna, either purchase canned light tuna or if buying canned albacore, purchase water-packed premium Pacific Albacore from a reputable supplier who has had the mercury levels tested by an independent lab.

Specialty brands of Premium or “Gourmet” canned Pacific tuna provide the most omega 3 oils of all types of canned tuna.

I believe this Tongol maybe in this category perhaps, it is usually $1.10 a can, as compared to Krogers usual $0.59 for regular tuna.
