**Updated 29th October – Due to a computer server issue at the closure of the auction originally scheduled to end 19th October that auction was abandoned.  As detailed in the announcement by Kentaro Sakai, President of Sakai Fish Farm, this auction has been rescheduled for November 3th with staggered ending on 4th and 6th November.**


‘Dear customers,

We inform you the process of server down on our website just before the end of the auction.
The cause was the number of bit was three times more than the day before the end(1,755,028bits)and it concentrated during the time before the end.

In the bits, the access from the same IP address was more than half.
We tried to make it clear that the access was from the registered user or it was attacked intentionally, but we couldn’t.

As a result, the access was stopped by compulsion due to the security program of the server management company because high-capacity of the server was happened unexpectedly.
We apologize for the inconvenience you experienced and the confusion.
