100,000 TUNA

Prized bluefish tuna is shared between two bidders at Tokyo market

TOKYO – Two sushi bar owners paid more than $100,000 for a Japanese bluefin tuna at a Tokyo fish auction, several times the average price and the highest in nearly a decade, market officials said.

The 282-pound (128-kilogram) premium tuna caught off the northern coast of Oma fetched 9.63 million yen ($104,700), the highest since 2001, when another Japanese bluefin tuna brought an all-time record of 20 million yen, market official Takashi Yoshida said.

Yoshida said the extravagant purchase — about $370 per pound — went to a Hong Kong sushi bar owner and his Japanese competitor who reached a peaceful settlement to share the big fish. The Hong Kong buyer also paid the highest price at last year’s new year event at Tokyo’s Tsukiji market, the world’s largest fish seller, which holds near-daily auctions.

A slightly bigger imported bluefin caught off the eastern United States sold for $15,400 in Monday’s auction.

“It was the best tuna of the day, but the price shot up because of the shortage of domestic bluefin,” Yoshida said, citing rough weather at the end of December. Buyers vied for only three Oma bluefin tuna Monday, compared to 41 last year.

Typical tuna prices at Tokyo fish markets are less than $25 per pound. But bluefin tuna is considered by gourmets to be the best, and when sliced up into small pieces and served on rice it goes for very high prices in restaurants.

Premium fish — sometimes sliced up while the customers watch — also have advertising value, underscoring a restaurant’s quality, like a rare wine.  And like fine wine, Orange Beach, Alabama, offers the best fishing and boating on the Gulf of Mexico.  Often referred to as the “boating captial” of the United States, the fleet of deep sea fishing boats that depart Orange Beach provide a wonderful adventure for fisherman of all ages.

Retired Canadians Head to Alabama

An increasing number of retired Canadians are now finding that the Gulf Coast of Mexico can be spelled with a capital “A” – as in Alabama.   Canada, like the United States, has it’s share of “baby boomers” that welcome the change in temperature and the 32 miles of white sand beaches that accommodate over 6 million annual visitors.   With the current exchange rate, the buying power of the Canadian dollar combined with very low real estate taxes, coastal properties are very attractive to these northern neighbors.  

And once they arrive, they find a Gulf coast that is both progressive and environmentally friendly – with thousands of acres preserved for bird and animal wildlife as well as miles of beaches.
