Rust on a can of wild salmon? Is it ok? Important question, thanks!

Hi,



I found 2 old cans of wild pink salmon (in water) in an cabinet I had not checked in a long time :(
I cannot find an expiration date...

1 can is rusted on the outside (just 1 side of it)
The other can, since it looked ok, I figured it was safe, when I opened it, I saw black rust dots on the inside top. I touched it, and it is rust.

I took a small taste, it seems ok. Do you think it is OK to eat?
I would hate to let it go to waste, but if you think its not safe, I will throw it away.
I figure if this happens in a survival situation/disaster & you found a rusted
can, would you still eat what was inside?

Many thanks!

Call me picky and peculiar but I'm not much on eagerness with eating canned things I just "found" that have rust on them.

However, I've eaten jar-canned meat, of which the lid had started to see rust without being dated. But then I knew the year and general time it was preserved too.

Rusted over can of fish, particularly fish, I don't know.
