tuna vs hemp

Bit of an odd one but as a daily source of protein which would be preferable in terms of nutritional content; tuna or hemp protein powder, and why?

    I wouldn't rely on one source only, I'd look to have various protein sources.

    Why not have both? I'm not a big fan of the taste of hemp, so for me, if I really had to pick I would go with tuna. As above, ideally you want to get you're protein from different sources. The only protein source I tend to always ensure I eat daily is beef, but for the rest if the day I will eat eggs, chicken, salmon and bacon for example.

    Neither as a sole source, IMO Tuna is not the best source of protein. 
    As above advice, good as a supplement to other sources.

    I guess what I really should have said was which is a better source out of the two. I definitely wouldn't choose one or the other as my sole source.

    Why do you say that Dumbat? Is it due to the heavy metal content?

    That is one reason I avoid fish these days, I also believe that a variety of meats is a better option.
    I source my Omega 3 from Hemp oil. 
    I consume a mixture of red and white meats.

    I think canned tuna has very little nutritional value other than the protein, I am sure the fresh tuna is excellent.
     
    Good for you if you can stomach hemp protein. I just bought a bag of unflavoured vegan mix and it is quite horrible.

    Bob Mcbobberson: Sorry, but that was one bulls**t article. It says you should avoid hemp if you have herpes (actually, it says you should "reframe", adding to the article's credibility), is allergic to hemp or have an auto-immune disease that is made worse by hemp, and suggests that the miniscule amounts of THC (about 0.00%) left in hemp protein might suppress your immune system (which would counteract #2, I suppose?), by some homeopathic mechanism I assume.
     
    All this is ridiculous. There are many reasons to chose animal protein over hemp protein, but those aren't the ones.
     
    Tuna is obviously superior because of bioavailability, digestibility, protein quality, and it just plain is more enjoyable to eat. With that said, I had <10% body fat when I was still a vegetarian even though I never worried about calories at all, and I was bigger and stronger than I've ever been since...
