Sushi is great. It’s full of protein and omega-3s, but health benefits aside, it just tastes good! Would you pay $632,000 for it though?
On Thursday, a sushi chain boss bought a 466-pound bluefin tuna at an auction for 74.2 million yen. ($632,000 U.S.) This enormous bid was the second highest ever after a record 155.4 million yen bid in 2013. That’s one expensive spicy tuna roll!
Kiyomura Corp. owner Kiyoshi Kimura posed with his huge purchase, which was caught off the coast of Japan’s northern Aomori prefecture.
