Blue fin tunas that can weigh as much as a thousand pounds are auctioned in the Tsukiji Market in Tokyo. These endangered fish can fetch hundreds of thousands of dollars each. Though many countries are fighting to protect them, these fish continue to be fished towards extinction.

On January 2013 a 222 kilogram blue fin tuna sold for 1.75 million dollars. This beat the previous record auction price of $736,000 set the previous year.
