Sea Wonder Tuna chunks in oil contains tuna, veg oil and salt.
Product like these are usually high in salt, and this one too contains 1.75 gm salt (705 mg sodium), which is high, as the daily allowance for salt intake as per WHO guidelines is 1-3 gm per day, and eating a 100 gm of this product takes you almost to that level.
It contains an unspecified vegetable oil in it, we believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to avoid clearly stating what ingredients have been used. Certain vegetable oils contain very large amounts of biologically active fats called Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which could be harmful in excess.

Ingredients in Sea Wonder Tuna in Oil which are a concern:

Edible vegetable Oil
This food product does not specify which edible vegetable oil has been used. We believe that it is not responsible behaviour for a brand to avoid clearly stating what ingredients have been used.
Certain vegetable oils contain very large amounts of biologically active fats called Omega-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids, which could be harmful in excess. Excess polyunsaturated fats may react with oxygen and oxidised Omega-6 fats can damage body functions and perhaps even vital structures like DNA. In addition, consumers need clear information about the type of vegetable oil used, so that they can take action to maintain a healthy balance between Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acid consumption.
In addition, some people may be allergic to specific oils. Food allergies can sometimes be life threatening.
High sodium diets have been known to be the cause of high blood pressure, heart disease, etc. The recommended daily intake of salt is between 1-3 grams.
