Why is bluefin tuna so expensive?



  1. 0 Votes

    The fish is believed to taste very well, and is quite popular, especially in Japanese cuisine. As the result, it is overfished throughout its range. There are a few species of bluefin tuna: two in Atlantic Ocean, Northern and Southern (both are critically endangered – on the verge of going extinct in immediate future), and the Pacific one – which is currently listed as vulnerable on the Red List. As the fish nears extinction, it is harder and harder to catch, and so the prices go up.
