Those figures don't stack up. Is this different to the fresh tuna we get in the supermarket?

£473,000 for the 269kg.
So thats £1,758 p.kilo.

So for a 200g steak, that would be £352 :eek:

The bigger the fish the more it's considered more expensive. Them rich Japs.

Saying climate change could be positive is a sacrilege. Burn the witch!
