Another Oarfish has been sighted, this time in Baja, Mexico.
Some cultures consider the presence of Oarfish in shallow waters to be an omen. They are very rarely seen and, as the story goes, tend to appear in
shallow waters before major tectonic events. The Ring has been active lately, so it is impossible to say whether this is indeed an omen or just
indicative of the activity already going on along the ring.

I was unaware of the lore associated with these creatures, but that was awesome!
According to traditional Japanese lore, the fish rise to the surface and beach themselves to warn of an impending earthquake - and there are
scientific theories that bottom-dwelling fish may very well be susceptible to movements in seismic fault lines and act in uncharacteristic ways in
advance of an earthquake
"But these are just old superstitions and there is no scientific relationship between these sightings and an earthquake," he said.
I still think there may be some correlation since these things reside in deep waters normally. It makes sense they would go shallow because of some
type of disturbance.
Supposedly these things showed up before and during the Fukashima earthquakes. There has been significant activity on the west coast as of lately, so
maybe they are a sign?

Yeah we are also expecting a pretty strong El Niño effect this year in Southern California. so the fact that the fish are responding differently
than normal to abnormal ocean patterns relative to a non El Niño year is no surprise.
