Japan was abuzz after a prized bluefin tuna weighing 489 pounds was sold for a record $1.76 million at the first auction of the year at Tokyo's Tsukiji fish market on Saturday. Kiyoshi Kimura, who is president of Kiyomura Co. and the Sushi-Zanmai sushi restaurant chain, bought the massive fish at $3,600 per pound. Let's repeat that, shall we? That's $1.7 million--or roughly the price of a mansion in most states--for a fish. That's one expensive hunk of sushi. Watch as Kimura..
That is right in the range of the best bluefin tuna meat though. I know that once they get over 550 lbs or so that the quality of the meat goes down somewhat. They look at all kinds of shit when they grade those tuna though.
A plate of sushi from that fish will probably go for 3 grand or so and that is about 5 paper thin pieces. No telling what the turo (sp?) from that fish will go for.

Yep, expect a chef sanctioned moratorium VERY soon. We need to lay off it, like Chilean seabass and sturgeon.
