Expensive foods are not necessarily tempting, but the reason why they are overpriced is certainly interesting.For this reason, in this article, we have tried to introduce 10 of the most expensive seafood and also describe their unusual price.However, this article does not mention the foods in which gold is used.
Because it is obvious that the use of gold sheets even on a seasonal salad can increase its price by several hundred thousand times.Therefore, the seafood collected in this list is expensive in nature.
1. Blue fin tuna:
But the most expensive seafood in the world belongs to a type of tuna called bluefin tuna. Of course, Pacific bluefin tuna is never used in canned fish and instead is used in luxury sushi.
In 2016, a 221 kg piece of bluefin tuna sold for $1.58 million, and three years later, in 2019, a 277 kg bluefin sold for an incredible $3.1 million. But what made the price of this fish go up so much? The first reason that was often seen in other foods on this list is the lack of this fish in nature. In fact, according to the announcement of the IUCN, bluefin tuna is among the endangered species, and for this reason, hunting them is considered illegal in many cases. Another factor that makes this fish so expensive is the law of supply and demand. Because the meat of this fish has a good taste and is high in fat, in addition, the meat of this fish is very suitable for sushi slices and has many fans in Japan.
A little while ago, it was said that beluga caviar is the most expensive type of caviar, which is not wrong.However, diamond caviar is a special type of caviar that does not belong to a specific species.In fact, diamond caviar is the eggs of sturgeon fish, which are very rare and have a transparent golden color.It is interesting to know that the name of this caviar is known as Almas all over the world, which is because of the popularity of Iranian caviar.The price of the best diamond caviar, which is obtained from beluga fish, can cost up to 15,000 dollars per 450 grams.
In general, caviar is considered a luxury and expensive food, whose name is seen as a raw material in the most expensive dishes in the world. Of course, caviar itself can also be served as a breakfast with egg yolk. But among sturgeon fish (Siberian, Beluga fish and stellatus and …), Beluga known as the most expensive caviar in the world, whose place of residence is the Caspian Sea.
