Is there an authentic alternative to Tuna that doesn't involve fish? I'm sadly allergic (although shellfish are fine).

There are recipes for this dish without the tuna, or with cured pork, semi soft cheeses and hard-cooked eggs. So you don't have to do a direct tuna substitute to get a tasty (and nutritious) dish. For ex:

Thank you! I really wanted to make something authentic for my first time trying the dish, so that's very useful to know.

Consult your allergist. This is much more a medical question more than a culinary question.

If crustaceans are okay, and not just mollusks I would suggest perhaps lobster, langoustine or even cold prawns.

Thank you! I can eat crustaceans, so that sounds like a tasty complement to the ingredients in the salad. I think I'll try prawns - perhaps with some olive oil to make up for the "packed in oil" part.
