Decent Canned Smoked or Unsmoked Seafood? (Not Tuna, Mackerel, Sardines, herring or Salmon)

Sure i know fresh is best, but I'm working on a project requiring canned seafood.Has anyone had a good tasting canned seafood that is not tuna , salmon, sardines, herring or mackerel ? I'm especially curious about smoked products( smoked shrimp, octopus, squid? or unsmoked of same?) The smoked oysters and smoked clams i have tasted have been so oily and oversmoked that I didn't think much of them, but maybe there are good versions out there...? The canned products could be Asian or European or American- doesn't matter. I recently noticed a Japanese can of braised eel (unagi); anyone had that? I don't care for TrJoe's canned smoked trout- has little flavor and is dry. This is a tough one, so Thanks so much for your help!
