    Bit concerned about the lack of gender balance in this workplace

  2. Tristan H on December 27, 2019 at 4:47 am

    This is the definition of overfishing.

    You mean minus the world famous one in Seattle. Lol. SMFH.

  7. Moose Knuckle on December 27, 2019 at 4:54 am

    Interesting that Honolulu is the only tuna auction…

  8. Mike Barton on December 27, 2019 at 4:55 am

    That’s not America. That’s occupied Hawaii.

    P.s. The business is utterly unsustainable.

  9. Edward Estacio on December 27, 2019 at 4:56 am

    Hawaii has the best seafood in the entire United States.

  14. Pids Me on December 27, 2019 at 5:00 am

    They got their tuna from philippines and indonesia.

  15. yhootoob on December 27, 2019 at 5:01 am

    Absolutely false. Tuna are auctioned every day, in various harbors, at Cape Cod. I’m sure Mass. is not the only state with ocean harvest auctions. No credibility to the channel, with, false claims are made, nonetheless, any tuna is good tuna, so, there’s that.

  16. WILD LIFE on December 27, 2019 at 5:03 am

    This is horrible

  17. Squiggly phrank on December 27, 2019 at 5:05 am

    Good video

  18. Saki630 on December 27, 2019 at 5:06 am

    Damn these guys are almost as dead as the fish they are buying. Except for the guy actually smiling

  19. David Soltai on December 27, 2019 at 5:07 am

    Too many people and not enough fish

  20. Mr Sausage on December 27, 2019 at 5:08 am

  24. El on December 27, 2019 at 5:14 am

    Slightly unrelated, but I went to a cow auction last year. Really fascinating how people bid on animals. They really do their research and make sure they get every pennies worth.

  28. Maile Higa on December 27, 2019 at 5:18 am

    This is cool! My coworker’s husband is in Oregon right now fishing for tuna !

  29. ecoroyalty on December 27, 2019 at 5:20 am

    The video ends with "9 years ago, this is truly God’s Country." So what happened?

  30. shaun ballagh on December 27, 2019 at 5:20 am

    Soon there will be no fish…

    And we wonder why oceans are overfished.

  35. UrDaddyTeddy on December 27, 2019 at 5:26 am

    Makes u wonder when we would run out of fish.

  36. Arky Darky on December 27, 2019 at 5:26 am

  37. Slap Riem on December 27, 2019 at 5:26 am

  38. Nicholas Csongvay on December 27, 2019 at 5:31 am

    This was a super awesome episode. Thank you Eater, very cool!

  39. Joze Reo on December 27, 2019 at 5:32 am

    Can we pls get a tuna cutting ASMR vid? 😅😅😅

  40. Theodore M. K. on December 27, 2019 at 5:33 am

    "You know years ago, this was truly God’s country." Wait, what? There were a few snippets of nonsense from these buyers. He also said, "Tuna is so special to me, because it’s the last industry that we have out here." A quick look on the internet shows Hawai’i has a plethora of industries that do well.

  41. mark KAO on December 27, 2019 at 5:34 am

    Is this sustainable

  42. Tab Creedence on December 27, 2019 at 5:35 am

    This is the beauty of capitalism. These guys get up in the wee hours of the morning to scrutinize these big fish so that we can stop in to our local sushi bar anytime we want and get great tasting sushi at a good price.

  43. rob lee on December 27, 2019 at 5:36 am

    I personally went to the auction once and it was fun. I stayed away from the tuna and let the professionals do there thing but I got to bid for a butterfish and a small ono. I thought 350 was $350 dollars but in the middle of the auction i learned it was $3 and 50 cents a pound. I also learned you basically cut out the middle man and save almost half the price a grocery sells at. If you need a lot of fish I’d go straight to the auction

  44. Daniel Muth on December 27, 2019 at 5:37 am

    100K pounds of fish/day….. and this is just ONE auction. Pretty soon, the oceans will be like "Gimme back my fish you greedy land dwellers! There’s none left to feed my people".

  45. Emanuel Brown on December 27, 2019 at 5:37 am

    The one guy looks like OJ Simpson.

  46. FUMANDO MOTA on December 27, 2019 at 5:39 am

    Worms 🐛🤢🤢🤢🤮

  47. Nathan Lam on December 27, 2019 at 5:42 am

    Stop selling to them!

  48. kofManKan on December 27, 2019 at 5:44 am

    Clearing the seas out, yay!

  49. Mahdi Alsharifi on December 27, 2019 at 5:46 am

    I learn about this video that tuna is complicated fish ….also the people

  50. Daan Made in Holland on December 27, 2019 at 5:47 am

    So all the fish caught in america from those programmas, they ship it to hawai ?

    I dont believe that, becous that will take days.
