World's Most-Prized Fish Sold

 :reporter; World's Most-Prized Fish Sold for $3.1 Million at Tokyo Auction :bonk:

  :doah: ......
 First Tuna Auction of 2019 At Toyosu Fish Market (Bloomberg) -- One of the world’s most expensive fish just got pricier.

 :coffee:
A 278-kilogram bluefin tuna sold for 333.6 million yen ($3.1 million) at a Tokyo fish market Saturday. The record price -- which equates to about $5,000 a pound -- is more than double the previous high set in 2013, according to Masayuki Fukuda, an official in charge of trading operations at the Tokyo market.
The record-topping fish was caught off Oma in northern Japan. It was sold on the first day of auction sales for 2019 at a center close to Tokyo Bay that opened in October following the relocation of the city’s main fish market in Tsukiji, near the upscale shopping area of Ginza.

 :popcorn: ....
Kiyomura Corp., which runs the Sushizanmai restaurant chain across Japan, made the winning bid, the Nikkei newspaper reported. The high-priced tuna will be served at regular prices at a Sushizanmai outlet in Tsukiji later on Saturday, the report said, estimating that the fish may cost an average of more than $200 per serving. :crazy:

Someone is gonna have to 'splane to me what makes this fish worth $5000 per pound.

Or is it just Crazy Rich Asians exercising their liberty to demonstrate their higher standard of living?
