The first of the year's catch of bluefin tuna is an occasion for celebration in the coastal city of Tung Gang. The largest fish will be auctioned off to local restaurants, this year fetching around 5,000 New Taiwan dollars (GBP 100) per kg. The largest fish of this first catch weighed in at 269kgs. The different species of bluefin tuna are at risk of extinction if unsustainable fishing practices across the world are not stopped.
