At the first bluefin auction of the year in Japan, a 466lb bluefin tuna sold for $632,000. That is $1356 per pound. It was the second highest price ever.

An owner of a sushi chain in Japan was the winner. His company often seems to win the auction.

The price is not indicative of the year long price. It is considered to be a price that generates publicity for the market.
