The17700000BluefinTunaQuiz Photo A 513 pound Bluefin Tuna was sold in Japan recently for a whopping $177,000.00.
Bluefin Tuna from Japanese waters seem to bring a higher price at auction than tuna from other parts of the world.
A core sample is taken from the fish to determine it's fat content, and the bidding begins.
Fish from warmer waters with a lower fat content don't bring in as much money.
I know of a fisherman fro North Carolina who called a Japanese fish broker to meet him on the dock with his fish.
The 421 pound fish was placed in a wooden crate with ice, and immediately flown to Tokyo.
His take after the smoke cleared was $ 9,317.59.
Not a bad day's fishing.
But as my friend lamented, the big fish are fewer, and fewer, and it can't go on forever.
Will the Bluefin Tuna go the way of the Buffalo?
Things have to be done now.
I hope this quiz expands your knowledge, happy sploofing!
