Yesterday evening's newspaper gave the results of the first tuna auction for the new year....
How much for a fish? Caught locally - off Hokkaido....

¥32.49 million yen!
95,000 yen /kg
It was bought by two people (half a fish each I guess), one a Hong Kong sushi chain, the other an upscale Ginza sushi restaurant.
I don't see a moratorium on tuna fishing any time soon....
