In Japan, Kiyoshi Kimura, president of Sushi-Zanmai, a Japanese sushi chain, bought a 593-pound bluefin tuna.
And it cost him $736,000!!!!
It broke the record for most expensive fish ever sold, with the previous record only being $416,000.
Bluefin tuna are government controlled when it comes to how many can be caught each year and this one was particularly huge so that's why the price was so high.
On his reason for spending so much for a single fish, Kimura said:

What a steal!
Royal newlyweds, Prince William and his Duchess Kate who are making their big North American trip next month, will attend the July 9 Foundation Polo Challenge at the Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club in California.
It's the one event on their U.S. tour that's open to the public.
That's right! And for the low low price of only $4,000 a person you can brush elbows with the VIPs seated in the royal couple's section!

Well, this brings puppy love to a whole new level.
An 11-month-old red Tibetan mastiff has become the world's most expensive dog in history!
The pooch named Big Splash, or "Hong Dong" in Chinese, was purchased in China for 10 million yuan (just over $1.5 million) Tuesday.
This particular Tibetan mastiff puppy is considered "a perfect specimen," so the buyer could recoup his investment in the dog in just a few years by hiring it out to other breeders for as much as 100,000 yuan each.
China's new "One Dog Per Household" law has already caused thousands of Chinese dogs to lose their homes and lives.
We know you can't put a price on the love of a pet, BUT paying this much for a dog, in a country overflowing with dogs in need?
CRAZY AS HELL!

Really big tuna.
A 754 pound tuna sold for a record 32.49 million yen, or nearly $396,000, in Tokyo on Wednesday.
Imagine reeling that one in on your rod!
The ginormous fish was sold at the first auction of the year at the world's largest wholesale fish market.
The tuna was bought by a pair of entrepreneurs who own a sushi restaurant chain in and around Tokyo.
The whopping price tag translates into about $526 per pound!
Good luck finding people to pay that.
It might not be that hard though, with the Japanese being the worlds largest consumer of seafood.
Fatty bluefin or "o-toro" here, is the the countries most sought after tuna and can sell for about $24 a piece at high-end sushi restaurants.
Not a pound, a piece!
We'll stick to the california roll.
