'I bought a good tuna': Japan's sushi king shells out record $4.2 million at Tokyo's new year fish auction

A Japanese sushi entrepreneur paid a record S$4.2 million for a giant tuna on Saturday as Tokyo’s new fish market, which replaced the world-famous Tsukiji late last year, held its first predawn new year’s auction.

Bidding stopped at a whopping 333.6 million yen for the enormous 278kg fish – an endangered species – that was caught off Japan’s northern coast.

Self-styled “Tuna King” Kiyoshi Kimura paid the top price, which doubled the previous record of 155 million yen from 2013.
