October 13, 2013, an enormous Oarfish was found off the coast of California and according to Japanese folklore the Oarfish acts as a messenger of warning from the Sea God’s Palace. Whenever they appear on the beaches of Japan, an earthquake is imminent.
In March 2010 the Daily Telegraph and the Japan Times reported that unusually high numbers of Oarfish had been found on the coast of Japan. The Daily Telegraph in particular warned that this was a sign of impending doom. A year and one terrible earthquake later the claims could seem to have been justified.
The fish is called Regalecus russelii or the Streamer fish. It is a member of the Oarfish family and lives 1,000m beneath the sea and is rarely seen on the surface unless sick or dying. They also happen to look like some sort of mythical sea serpent.
It’s no wonder that there is a legend surrounding the fish.
There is no way of knowing, if and when, earthquakes quake but given the various visions we have been experiencing anything is possible and probable.
