I can't imagine. That better be the best dang fish ever consumed by a human. Let me guess they served it sushi style.

I wouldn't pay for it. Seems to be false advertising to me.

After all, if the thing was so lucky, how did it end up being served up as the special of the day???

Doesn't seem too lucky for the fish.

And the restaurant will lose money serving it? Not so lucky for the restaurant either. I don't get it! Is it supposed to be lucky to the person who eats it?

That is a very interesting article but I would not pay that kind of money for a fish even though it might be very rare.
