The Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo has banned tourists from its tuna auction for one month.

The ban started Monday and will continue until Jan. 17.

Misbehaving visitors have hugged the tuna on display and pushed baby strollers on the auction floor, upsetting market staff because the value can be up to $50,000 per fish.
