WWF Hong Kong urges local restaurants not to join bidding for critically endangered blue fin tuna at Tsukiji Market in Tokyo early next month. Last year, a Hong Kong sushi chain snared one of the largest, which weighed 128kg, for HK$830,000. The group said the blue fin tuna population had dropped 85 per cent since the 1970s. An international trade ban on the fish is being considered.
