A bluefin tuna sold for 193.2 million yen ($1.8 million) in an auction at Tokyo’s Toyosu fish market, the second highest price on record.

The tuna was caught off northern Aomori Prefecture and weighed 276 kilograms (608 lbs), which translates into a price of about 700,000 yen per kilogram.

The successful bidder was Kiyoshi Kimura, the head of the company that runs sushi restaurant chain “Sushizanmai”.

Last year Kimura paid a record 333.6 million yen for a tuna at the auction, exceeding his previous record price in 2013.
