Some are even rare, making them even more attractive, attention grabbing and of course, highly rated. Their rarity, uniqueness, and the legal costs, process and terms of finishing the makes them the rarest, most special and definitely the most expensive in the world. Below is a list of the most expensive fish in the world today.

Fresh Water Polka dot Stingray is one of those fish in human history that cost rather crazy. If 100,000 USD is the price tag of such a creature, then this is damn costly for sure. The peculiar genetic mutation on the forehead makes it appear to be u-shaped instead of round, very normal for the rare species. This species mostly feed on Shellfish.However, more fascinating are their inabilities to hunt and are the mostly suitable to be handfed.

It is important to note that because of their rarity and uniqueness, their prices may inflate to cover up various legal and operational cost incurred during the harvest. Many may never come to own some or even any of these expensive fish species. However, it’s remarkable to witness how much some of these collectors are willing to cash in for eight of the world rarest fish on the list.
