: Whether you keep it in the original can or another container is a
: matter of taste. Obviously, the intent should be to consume the tuna
: once opened within 7 days. Keeping it covered is a good idea to
: prevent any bacteria residing in your fridge from contaminating your
: food more rapidly.

To add from my experience with human as well as cat food (same problem,
same principle):

When you have the choice, use the smallest container that will
accommodate the food. The idea is for the food to be in contact with as
little air as possible.

For the same reason, if using saran wrap, push the top of it down all
the way to the food, again so there is least possible air left in
contact with the food.
