Most Expensive Saltwater Fish

By Abijah Keru on March 30 2014

At nearly $1.8 million, the Pacific Bluefin fish is the most expensive saltwater fish. Sold at Tokyo’s Tsukiji Market auction, the 222-kilogram fish became the property of Co’s president, Kiyoshi Kimura in 2013.The Bluefin is prized for its tender pink meat, which is used in sushi and sashimi dishes. Its increasing rarity due to overfishing is also skyrocketing market prices an area of great concern to environmentalists who fear that the fish will go extinct. Despite this, there is a ready market for the fish in Japan and the crown for the most expensive saltwater fish will soon be taken if the Pacific Bluefin population continues dwindling.
