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:

"Japan has been through a lot the last year due to the disaster… Japan needs to hang in there."

Wow, what a great guy.

Drops almost three-quarters of a million dollars on one fish then plans to sell it for only $5.45 per piece.
