day 68: 2.400 tons

1f

This is Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo. 2.400 tones of fish circulate here every day. In times of news that a lot of fish are becoming rare due to overfishing, this is an horrendous number. The real action is taking place here at 6:00 a.m., when the tuna auction is going on. Bluefin tuna can sell up to the unbelievable price of 10,000 US dollars.

I came late so there where only some fish head left in the garbage and not much going on…
