    "An ounce of pickled herring has nearly 200 IU of vitamin D. Two
    small sardines have 65 IU. But not all fish contains vitamin D.
    Salmon and tuna, for example, have none."

    The USDA disagrees. 100 calories (72 g) of canned Alaska pink salmon
    has 450 IU according to them.

    You are right in your correction. And there is also vitamin D in tuna.
