I gave my DS tuna when he was about 10 months old. He didn't have a problem with it, but that doesn't mean your LO won't.

I would be worried about the mercury and possible fish allergy, kind of like no eggs before 1.
I have given my son many things already though to try..lol

There can be an allergy problem but really anything can be. I don't see any harm in giving him a little bit. Giving him a spoonful or two once a week isn't going to hurt him. And of course, you should watch and see for any allergies. But in moderation, it should be fine. How old or young are we talking?
