i know most have seen this but i just thought i would post it up.

here is a short explanation from Albemarle Boats.

Albemarle Boats would like to congratulate Dennis Meinhart, owner of the 410 Convertible Sea Wolf, for an outstanding catch on Sunday, December 17, 2006. After a four and a half hour fight, Meinhart and crew boated an 875 lb Blue Fin Tuna. Caught out of Beaufort Inlet, the fish is a pending North Carolina State record, smashing the previous record by more than one hundred pounds.

Hey TJ, how much does one like that go for in japan?
They fought the fish too long (4 1/2 hours). They probably got $7-8 per pound. The average price of bluefin tuna caught in NC now is about $10 - 13 per pound.
