Bid/Ask: A $117,000 tuna; GM hops in with Lyft

Bloomberg Businessweek (Asia) - - Contents - By Kyle Stock

Tuna gets rich. In the first auc­tion of the year at Tokyo’s Tsuk­iji Fish Mar­ket, a 440-pound bluefin tuna fetched al­most three times as much as the prici­est fish at 2015’s in­au­gu­ral sale. The bid came from Kiyoshi Kimura, pres­i­dent of restau­rant chain Sushi-Zan­mai, who set a record in 2013 when he paid al­most $1.8 mil­lion for a 490-lb. tuna. The his­toric Tsuk­iji mar­ket will be de­mol­ished later this year.
