This is bigeye tuna available right now.
Stomach side with ohtoro is great.
Our buying price is also high.
To be honest, the price is $16.50/ lb.
But this come with blood part(See the right side of tuna, dark part) cannot use and dump skin. So actual price is $18.15
And take a good part for sushi, sashimi. soft part, top part go to spicy tuna. And they have worms sometimes. Tuna is not 100% healthy because of wild caught. Some tuna are sick like us or injured. We need to dump these parts. And cost is higher than buying price.
So, you will understand 1 order of tuna nigiri price is $6-$7 and toro price is $9.50-$10.
