CHANGING TASTES

25 years ago large Atlantic bluefin tuna (250 to over 1,000 pounds) might sell for a penny a pound for catfood, if it sold at all.  Today, that same bluefin tuna can sell for well over $100 per pound, mainly due to the popularity of sushi and sashimi around the world.

In 2001 a 440 pound bluefin sold for $173,600 in the Japanese Tsukiji fish market - that’s about $394 per pound!

In 2009 a 282 pound Bluefin sold for $104,000 at the Tsukiji market ($371 per pound).
