A 5-meter (16 feet) oarfish, a giant eel-like fish from the deep rarely seen alive, was caught at a beach nearby Seaside Park in Taitung, Taiwan on October 28, 2013.
In ancient times, Japanese people believed that this sea serpent warned on coming earthquakes. Known in Chinese as a dizhenyu or, earthquake fish. Oarfish are known to have washed up on shores before and after major earthquakes.
The catch follows two equally rare oarfish encounters on the coast of California earlier this month, sparking concerns of an impending earthquake.
Three days later (October 31, 2013): A very strong and dangerous 6.3M earthquake, 45km SSW of Hualian in Taiwan.
Recent cases linking quakes and oarfish include the Tohoku earthquake in 2011 off the Japanese coast that resulted in a tsunami and 20 oarfish washed up on nearby beaches. Via globaltimes
