Japan’s popular Sushi-Zanmai chain has just bought a Bluefin tuna with the winning bid of $1.8 million. This was a new record for the world’s most expensive fish. The winning bidder is Kiyoshi Kimura who is the president of Kiyomura Co, as reported by AFP.
Bluefin is one of the most expensive fish that is being sold at Tokyo’s Tsukiji fish market. This was due to the minimum numbers of Bluefin tuna available in the market.
In recent years, many advanced nations have considered Bluefin tuna as endangered species. Many countries have also asked governments to ban fishermen on catching this type of fish.
