|Mackerel (and salmon) is pretty safe. I feed a can with some fiber as a meal about once a week.
Tuna is the one to be careful with. High mercury/toxin content... When I've done the math it comes out to something like one tuna meal every 5 weeks as being safe for dogs the size of my guys.
"Real" fish is very different than canned in taste and texture, but if you have an Oma's Pride dealer in the area you may be able to get whole (heads, guts and all) mackerel. We got a case once before we had to give up our freezer and my dogs loved it! It came out to something really decent like $2/fish too.
My other fish source is Shaw's. They have those 10 for $10 pouches of frozen filets... It averages out to $4/lb, but that's still an ok price for fish and it's super easy to add them to a meal as bit of extra MM and O3s. Just double check you aren't grabbing the seasoned ones.
