Most Expensive Fish To Eat

To the untrained eye and palate, a fish is just a fish. But like the Animal Farm, some are more expensive than others and that’s where categories of fish come in. The true value of a fish is in its monetary value and the tag for the most expensive fish to eat goes to the 222-Kilogram Bluefin tuna, which was sold at an auction in Tokyo in 2013 for a jaw dropping $1.8 million.

Why the enormous price tag?  The Bluefin tuna is becoming quite rare due to overfishing, but the main reason is the fact that restaurant owners, most of whom are involved in the auction, compete for the prestigious honour of being the owner of the most expensive fish. Thus, the winning bidder in this instance was Kiyoshi Kimura who operates the restaurant chain Sushi Zanmai.

True to Japanese modesty, he claimed that the price that year was a bit high and that the fish would only be offered to customers on Saturday evenings in small pieces, which could fetch up to $24. This isn’t the first time he has bid on tuna, Kimura also held the previous record of $736000 for a 269-kilogram Bluefin tuna. With such bragging rights, Kiyoshi Kimura is the owner of the world’s most expensive fish to eat.
