Pandemic overshadows Japan's New Year tuna auction

Tokyo's Toyosu fish market holds it's first tuna auction of 2021 on Tuesday. Before dawn, buyers in rubber boots inspect the quality of giant fresh and frozen tunas by examining the neatly cut tail end with flashlights and rubbing slices between their fingers. The most expensive fish of the day -- a 208-kilogram (459-pound) bluefin caught off the northern Aomori region of Japan, known for its quality tuna -- was bought by a bidder for 20.84 million yen ($202,000).
