4 > 5.5

Here’s a puzzle:

Why is it that 4 ounces of deliciously fresh tuna, marinated and cooked medium-rare on the grill,[1] seems like enough... but a 5.5-ounce can of tuna seems meagre?

Why is that?

[1] And I don’t think for a minute that the zucchini sautéed with garlic had anything to do with it, either.

One's a solid slab of meat, the other a flaky pile? Which is to say, if you squeeze out the water (or oil) from the canned tuna, do you still have 5.5 oz of fish?
