I know that fresh tuna contains some, but does canned tuna contain EFA's (Essential fatty acids)?

Thats a good point....
EFAs are very sensitive. I am sure there is still some but not as much as in the fresh stuff due to all the processing. However having said that there are still plenty of EFAs in tinned salmon.
I wouldn't rely on it as your sole source of EFAS though and it might be a good idea to supplement with other forms of EFAs in small amounts, either in oil form or capsule form.
