  Most Expensive Tuna Fish: Japan bluefin tuna breaks Guinness world record

  
TOKYO, Japan -- A 222-kilogram bluefin tuna was sold at Tokyo's Tsukiji market for an all-time high of
1.8 million dollars, ($8,000 per kilo of tuna) or 155.4 million yen, at the annual new year auction,
setting the new world record for the Most Expensive tuna fish, according to the World Record Academy: www.worldrecordacademy.com/.

  The Guinness world record for the Most expensive tuna fish was set by a blue-fin tuna (Thunnus thynnus) weighing 342 kg (754 lb); it sold at an auction in the Tsukji fish market in Tokyo, Japan, on 5 January 2011, where it raised 34.49 million Yen ($420,000 or £270,000).

  Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most expensive of all caviar; it is 'Almas', from the Iranian Beluga fish - 1 kg (2 lb 3 oz) of this 'black gold' and is regularly sold for £20,000 (then $34,500).

   "The price was a bit high," the winning bidder Kiyoshi Kimura told the Kyodo News Agency. "But I hope we can encourage Japan by providing good tuna."

  He operates the Sushi Zanmai restaurant chain, which claims to be Japan's first 24-hour, 365-days-a-year sushi bar.

  Tiny sushi slices of the prized fish can sell for up to $24, according to the Associated Press. Japanese consume up to 80% of the world's declining tuna stock.
