The Tsukiji fish market auction grabs headlines this time of year, almost every year. Last year, the story was on a 513-pound bluefin tuna that netted $177,000. This year's catch blew that one out of the water. Yesterday's 754-pound specimen sold for a record 32.49 million yen, which is about $396,000, a whopping $526 per pound. The prize goes to a sushi restaurant in Tokyo's Ginza district and a Hong Kong sushi chain.

The price will, no doubt, continue to rise, hastened by dwindling stocks of the species.
