A 754-pound tuna was sold at auction in Tokyo yesterday for a record breaking $396,000. To put it in perspective, that’s $526 per pound or $164.37 per can of tuna, which would come to $82.19 per sandwich (not including the mayonnaise). Of course it won’t end up on toast with lettuce since it was bought by two sushi restaurants which could get as much as $24 per piece by calling it “o-toro” instead of Starkist. Sorry Charlie.
