Bluefin tunas that can weigh as much as a thousand pounds are auctioned in the Tsukiji Market in Tokyo. These endangered fish can fetch up to $100,000 a piece. Though many countries are fighting to protect them, these fish continue to be fished towards extinction.
Goliath groupers gather annually in spawning aggregations at offshore reefs and wreck sites throughout the Caribbean and parts of Florida.
