Bluefin tuna auctioned in Tokyo for record $736,000

The bluefin tuna caught off northeastern Japan fetched a record $736,000 in the first auction of the year at the fish market. The tuna was caught off Oma in Aomori prefecture and just north of the coast that was battered by the March 11 tsunami

Imagine reeling in a bluefin tuna offshore in the Gulf.

I need to know who to call.

Close to 600 pounds.

And yes, it was purchased at far beyond market value.

There were emotional factors behind the high price.

This isn't anything new. Big tuna have been fetching these prices in Japan for a while.

It's crazy.

If pulling bluefins out of the Cantabrian Sea, aka the Bay of Biscay, were allowed, a beast of this calibre would be much more expensive. Much more.
