Default Holy sheeeeet. Japanese 'Tuna King' pays record $3M for prized bluefin Tuna at famed Tokyo fish auction

Self-described Japanese "Tuna King" Kiyoshi Kimura paid a record $3 million for a 612-pound (278-kilogram) bluefin tuna at the first new year's auction in Tokyo on Saturday.

The winning sum for the prized and threatened species at the auction was more than double the previous record from the annual New Year auction, set in 2013.

Bluefin tuna normally sells for up to $40 a pound, but the price steeply increases by the year’s end and reaches its highs for prized catches in Northern Japan.

O.K so after fileting he will get what like around 500 lbs of tuna? Where is our math majors? So 500 into $3 mil. how much is that a slice?
See you guys in a month or so I am heading to Jap land to goes fisin.
