Holy Tuna!


A bluefin tuna sold for 20.8 million yen ($202,197) in the first auction of the new year at Tokyo’s Toyosu fish market on Tuesday according to Reuters.

The highest-selling tuna fetched 193 million yen  at last year’s first Toyosu auction.

Major bidder Kiyomura Corp said they had refrained from bidding high this year out of fear that a large number of customers would be inspired to flock to their restaurants since high bids for high quality tuna usually attract media attention.
