Yes, that's what it means. The ocean currents are strong, and spread the water all around the world. The nuke water will be more diluted in the Atlantic, but it's there.

I bought some water packed, solid albacore, Chicken Of The Sea last week for tuna salad, and after draining the excess liquid the chunks were decent quality and not mushy. I don’t like tuna much, but made the salad with chopped garlic, red onion, oregano, balsamic vinegar and olive oil instead of mayo. Added chopped romaine, salt and pepper and it was not bad for a healthy sandwich.

Chicken of the Sea...what (more details)? There are so many variations now, you have to be specific when either recommending or warning against.

Ok, I fixed it. Actually, any canned tuna is sub par when you compare it to the fresh spicy tuna roll I had last week at my favorite mom and pop Japanese restaurant.

You're almost there. *Chunk or Solid* White Albacore in Water? Really, they're just trying to confuse us to the point where we don't notice how nasty it's gotten!

It was solid albacore! This has gotten more complicated than writing an office report, lol.

So I conducted an experiment over the weekend (you're welcome) and concluded that the best reasonably priced recognizably named tuna available in grocery stores is Starkist LIGHT CHUNK in water and NOT the albacore at all, both in terms of taste and texture. I noticed that the latter, while marginally higher in protein, also invariably contain ADDED phosphorous. Maybe that's what makes them taste so hinky.

Anyone else notice this, and what brands would you recommend (before I have to feed even more of it to my cats)?
Not sure if you mean a "supermarket"' brand, or a good national brand that is sold in supermarkets. I buy Bumblebee, and have no problem with it.

What do you mean, "Now that albacore has become a thing"?

I hope that some alternative rock band takes the title of this thread as its name.
