Big Fish (Price) Story

I like sushi.  What's not to like? (Other than the wasabi-- what the heck is that?!) But this caught in my throat:

"The average price of a single bluefin tuna is anywhere between $2,000 and $20,000. It all depends on the size, the season, and their fat content - the fattier, the better."  

The whole tale: The King of Sushi


  1. And they say they can't give up blue fin because "we're Japanese. We eat sushi." They'll have to give it up when there isn't any left.

    Not that there aren't dozens of things comparably stupid in Amerian behavior.

  2. I am a hound. I chase cats. And I manage to control myself.
