Japan Dwindling Tuna
In this Jan. 5, 2013 photo, frozen tunas are displayed before the first auction of the year at the Tsukiji Market in Tokyo. Catching bluefin tuna, called “hon-maguro” here, is a lucrative business. A single full-grown specimen can sell for 2 million yen, or $20,000, at Tokyo’s sprawling Tsukiji fish market. Japanese fishermen are vying with Korean, Taiwanese and Mexican fisherman for a piece of a $900 million wholesale market. (AP Photo/Shuji Kajiyama)
