I store the foil pouch because they are small, light weight and single servings. I am the only one in my family that eats tuna. Also I think the pouch comes in more flavors nothing is worse than eating the same thing day after day.

I will only trust tuna in standard cans. Too easy to damage a foil pouch.
This.
Canned tuna is good for 5+ years after the expiration date, assuming the can is intact, not bulging, and doesn't have pressure released when opened.
If it passes the sniff test, it should be fine.
Pouches are lighter, but the trade-off is durability.

It's not that expensive, I see it in the dollar stores all the time.

'Course, it may not be dolphin-safe, but...
Compared to the flavored tuna in cans it's twice as expensive because you get half as much for the same price. Having said that I do keep some around for convience. Nice to keep a handful in the truck for road trips and stuff.

Canned fish I got - salmon, tuna (in water and in olive oil, and other flavor), kippered sardines, kippered smoked sardines, sardines/mackerels in tomato sauce -
they all have best-before date 2026. As long as they're undamaged (no dents), and stored properly (in cool, dark, dry place), they can last longer.
