What is the best canned salmon alternative to Dave's Gourmet Seafood?

We've been ordering from Dave's Gourmet for a couple years, and I will confess that it's the best canned salmon and albacore I've ever tasted, but I just looked at the latest price list and I almost choked. A seven ounce can of salmon is $11.00. A six ounce can of crab is $14.95. Plus shipping.

Is there an alternative that I can find at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods that is just as good (organic, ocean/river caught, free of mercury, yadda yadda) that isn't so high-priced? We're used to a nice, oily salmon that we can eat straight from the can, so if there's anything out there that comes close, let me know. Thanks!
