How much would you pay for a piece of really fresh sushi? A sushi restaurant has just bought what is the world's most expensive fish: $736,000 for a bluefin tuna caught off the coast of Japan.

The winning bidder, Kiyoshi Kimura, president of Kiyomura Co., which operates the Sushi-Zanmai restaurant chain, said he wanted to give Japan a boost after last year's devastating tsunami.
The fish was divided into 10,000 pieces and sold off at ordinary prices, The Daily Telegraph reported.
"Japan has been through a lot the last year due to the disaster," a beaming Kimura told AP Television News. "Japan needs to hang in there. So I tried hard myself and ended up buying the most expensive one."
