Japanese Man Displays His £1 Million Tuna

Quote:
The 222-kilogramme (489-pound) tuna was caught off northeastern Japan and transported to Tokyo's huge Tsukiji fish market.
The winning bidder, Kiyoshi Kimura, president of Kiyomura Co., which operates the Sushi-Zanmai restaurant chain, said the price was "a bit high," but that he wanted to give Japan a "boost," according to Kyodo News agency.
Mr Kimura also set the old record of 56.4 million yen at last year's New Year's auction, which tends to attract high bids as a celebratory way to kick off the new year - or get some publicity.
Mr Kimura was planning to serve the fish to customers later on Saturday.

Re: Japanese Man Displays His £1 Million Tuna

It's a pretty insane thing to wrap one's head around ...the Tsukiji fish market sells around 15 US million dollars worth of fish daily.

The rule, when visiting Japan; never eat tuna in a restaurant on a Monday or a Thursday because the market is closed Sundays and most Wednesdays.

Much of the fish (including tuna) sold at the market isn't local to Japan. Fish of all types, including tuna, are caught off the East coast of the US one day and sold at the Tsukiji market the very next morning.

Wonder if they use Fedex or UPS ???

How I loathe Japan (and China's) endless rape of mother nature.

I see the earthquake and Tsunami as karma for what they do, I wonder when China gets a good hit.
