World’s Most Expensive Tuna Sold at Auction

It’s really amazing how much people are willing to spend on exotic foods and delicacies. Overgrown truffles , old hams and other oddities manage to fetch thousands and even hundreds of thousands of dollars. This time we present to you the world’s most expensive tuna, a 324 kilograms (712.8 pounds) ocean fish in Japan.

The giant delicacy was caught near Toi in Hokkaido, a freezing cold area this time of the year, but very rich in delicious bluefin tuna. The poor thing ended up being sold at an auction this Wednesday, and fetched a mind-boggling sum of 32.49 million yen, which translated into our money is about $400,000. Unsurprisingly, the buyer is a sushi bar in Tokyo.
