    It's a publicity stunt for Sushi Zanmai. They're EVERYWHERE in Tokyo. I saw a couple of locations within blocks of one another outside of Tsukiji.

    I think I've heard/read that it has to do with publicity more than anything else - it's the first fish bought at the new year. Another fish of the same size and quality that would sell right after the first one would never sell at such a high price.

    Publicity stunt or not you really have to wonder where it all ends. To me it seems more like negative publicity then any thing positive. Any one know what Kindai is selling for now? Here's a nice video breaking one down.

    I know I would be in line to have some of that. Not saying it would be worth it, but I would totally have people wishing they got one next year.

    I've got some Bluefin in my freezer that I'll sell to forum members for the low cost of $200/lb. (not including shipping)
