Record Price Set For Tuna


A tuna has sold at auction for a record 32.49m yen in Tokyo, nearly $400,000 (£257,320).

The fish was a blue fin, a variety prized for making the finest sushi. It was bought by a joint Japanese and Chinese bid.

The first auction in January at Tokyo’s Tsukji fish market is a cherished part of Japan’s New Year celebrations, and record prices are often set.
