Premium Bluefin Tuna acutioned for $100,000 in Tokyo, Japan




 $100,000 Premium bluefin tuna
Two anonymous sushi bar owners paid $104,700 or .63 million yen for a Japanese bluefin tuna at Tokyo's Tsukiji market. The premium quality tuna caught off at the northern coast of Oma and weighing 282.48 pounds (128.4 kilograms) was auctioned for 9.63 million yen ($104,700), the highest in nearly a decade, when another Japanese bluefin tuna fetched an all-time record of 20 million yen, market official Takashi Yoshida said.Usually, the typical tuna prices at Tokyo fish markets are less than $25 per pound ($55 per kilogram). But bluefin tuna is considered to be the best by chefs - succulent and a little on the light side and when sliced up into small pieces and served on rice it goes for very high prices in restaurants.
