Two species of the predaceous diving beetle (Dytiscidae) in pans in the Restaurent that I visited on 12/27/1999. The one on right has a price of 10 yen per 100 gram, which is equivalent to about $6 per pound. I suspect that the beetles were artificially reared, since there were so many of them, but this was just my guessing.
