      It's a tradition in Japan, first tuna sold off the year has to be stupidly pricy or something

      tradition turned into a big media event turned into advertising for the buyer

      the fish has perfect or near perfect tests for quality meat
      size
      appearance

      hype and over the top celebration of great traditional food

      Nice AI post, moronic homosexual.

      It’s ai you moron it’s not real

      Correct. Here's the real fish. Most of the stories using the AI image are also bullshitting people. This wasn't a record-breaking price, it was the 4th-highest price. The first blue fins caught each year usually go for stupid high prices because they can auction the freshest, largest and nicest looking ones at a premium to be used in special new year's dishes: https://english.kyodonews.net/news/2024/01/e00f428bb398-tuna-fetches-114-million-yen-at-new-year-auction-in-tokyo.html

    I just looked it up.
    Bluefin is a new years tradition in japan.
    Also, the japanese are obsessed with spending tons of money on "perfect" looking foods as a way to be auspicious.

    So this was just some japanese billionaire showing off like "hey happy new years poorgays"

      The fish meat will be sold to alot of different sushi restaurants. Maybe a group of restaurants bought it.

            Kek, I barely leave Culinaly, anon. I meant that it'll be interesting with so much generated content out there because it's like nothing will be real anymore. Search engine image results? How much of that will be generated after 5 years? Bit disturbing to think about.

            It's fricking obvious from the pic and I was severely disappointed that the first reply didn't point this out.

            Well yeah it was obvious, but that's why I wanted to see if they tried to pass it off as the actual fish
