    A US caught fish will not qualify for the "honor" has to come from local fisherman.

    Whatever the case, $3.5 million is about $3.475 million more than ANY tuna is worth. LOLOLOL

    No different then a steak house chain paying big bucks for the blue ribbon steer from a state farm show.

    Funny thing about some tuna charters, most of the time its the captain's fish not the charters unless you agree differently before hand.

    Even if there were 9600 usable, first rate one ounce pieces of tuna that the restauranteur was able to sell for over $300 per ounce, he would still just barely be paying for the tuna without any profit. These numbers just don't work.
