Japan tuna auction prices slump

Bluefin tuna sells at a Japanese auction for less than five percent of the record-breaking sum paid last year.

    The first Bluefin tuna auction of the year has been held in Tokyo.
     
    The fish is a staple part of Japanese diet and prize specimens sell for tens of thousands of dollars.
