A record $3.1 m (Rs 21 crore) has been paid for a giant bluefin tuna at Tokyo’s new fish market, which replaced the world-famous Tsukiji late last year.

Self-styled “Tuna King” Kiyoshi Kimura paid the top price, which doubled the previous record of 155 million yen also paid by him in 2013. The 278 kg fish (612 pounds) was caught off Japan’s northern coast. Speaking to Japanese broadcaster NHK, he said, “The quality of the tuna I bought is the best.”

A 612-pound (278-kilogram) bluefin tuna sold for a record 333.6 million yen (Rs 21 crore) in the first auction of 2019, after Tokyo’s famed Tsukiji market was moved to a new site on the city’s waterfront.
