The freak phenomena happened not once, but twice, on Thursday and Friday afternoon about 6pm at Lajamanu, about 550km southwest of Katherine.
Lajamanu sits on the edge of the Tanami Desert, hundreds of kilometres from Lake Argyle and Lake Elliott and even further from the coast. But it's not the first time the remote community has been bombarded by fins from above.
Weather bureau senior forecaster Ashley Patterson... said it would have been an ideal weather situation to allow the phenomena to occur - but no tornados have been reported to the authority.
"These fish were alive when they hit the ground."
Waterspouts are capable of capturing objects and animals and lifting them into the air. Under this theory, waterspouts or tornados transport animals to relatively high altitudes, carrying them over large distances. The winds are capable of carrying the animals over a relatively wide area and allow them to fall in a concentrated fashion in a localized area. More specifically, some tornadoes can completely suck up a pond, letting the water and animals fall some distance away in the form of a rain of animals.

Supposedly, fish can survive long periods of time out of water.
BUT!!! I really can't see this as a natural event, especially since the scene was somewhat far from a water source. Like Nomad said, it seems kinda like a computer glitch. It seems so weird.
Maybe we are living in some sort of hologram or "Matrix". Reminds me of Matrix Reloaded, when the oracle is speaking about the glitches in the system, and that's the reason for ghosts, UFOs etc.
I don't buy into the whole fake world theory, but just laying it out there.

It almost seems like a strange glitch. It's almost as if out universe is a computer program the suffers from an odd glitch here and there.
Fish and frogs falling from the sky... Whoops that wasn't supposed to happen!

frogs of all the same species, fish of all the same species, little pond pebbles, blobs of "manna", ice chunks. All dropped without the surrounding mud, pond-weed etc.
I can stretch my mind enough to allow the explanation of a huge school of fish all swimming together in open water, but a school of frogs? Nah...
