But Japan's insatiable appetite for blue fin tuna - a country that consumes 80% of the global catch - is eating the fish to near extinction, say activists.
The EU and the U.S. are formally seeking to ban the trade of the fish at the UN meeting called the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) in Qatar.
"The Atlantic Bluefin tuna has been over fished to such an extent that only about 20 percent are left in the world's oceans," Karen Sack from the Pew Environment Group told CNN.
"These are the lions or tigers of our oceans and we need to make sure that we protect them now before it is too late."
While countries like the U.S. are supporting the ban, Japan is opposed to it.
A vote on the blue fin tuna is expected sometime early next week.
We want to know what you think.
Should we ban the trade of blue fin tuna to save help save the speices? Is a total ban the answer or should we focus on reducing over fishing?
Have you ever had blue fin tuna sushi? Would you continue eating it knowing it was endangered?
