March 14, 2011 – SAN DIEGO, Ca - An Azeri scientist has linked the recent incident of California’s mass fish death to the earthquake in Japan. “Animals, they feel everything. They run away from earthquakes however they can,” Gurban Jalal Etirmishli, the general director of the Azerbijan Science Academy's Republican Center for Seismology, told Life News, a Russian tabloid.
More than a million sardines washed up on California's Redondo Beach last week. Scientists say they suffered from a lack of oxygen, but some reports have said they were found to have high toxin levels.
"During the first underground movements on March 8, toxic gases and even radiation could have oozed out, becoming a reason for the death of the fish," Etirmishli said. "If, in the near future, a similar thing happens, it can be a sign of a coming earthquake."
Etirmishli offered absolutely no proof for his theory, but noted that more than 100 whales washed up on New Zealand's shore days ahead of its deadly earthquake. His comments to the tabloid came after an Azeri scientist, Ikram Kerimov, published an open letter in local press putting forth the theory.
"Certain ranges of acoustic waves in the marine environment, caused by movements ahead of a big earthquake, are disastrous for marine animals, from which they die or throw themselves onshore," Kerimov wrote.

You make some good points Antonistar..
What will be the next excuse for what will be precieved as the result of whats has taken place in Japen?. Air and Water will continue to be more toxic...
This will be to some extent controlled as well by MSN
Currents will continue to flow.
Be Wise, Be Well..

Alright, as per Robin's request, I am posting/sharing a post I made in another thread here on ATS. That other thread, to be specific is here:
Critical New Quake Could Mean Impending Disaster For Japan
Now here is my post from that thread:
TA ... I just discovered something that has me seriously on edge. I know this thread is about Japan and the potential for another disasterous earthquake, but I feel there is a connection here, with my discovery. Adding to that, I really value your research and opinions. So please allow me to share and please provide back any and all feedback, including thoughts, instincts, etc.
Ok... we know that with this Japan megaquake, along with the ridiculous amount of aftershocks, the subducting of tectonics plates is in full force here. Science backs that up as well.
Subduction zones is the key here in what I just researched and discovered.
I've been reading a lot lately about "mud volcanos". I really didn't understand them so I did some research.
The terms mud volcano or mud dome are used to refer to formations created by geo-excreted liquids and gases, although there are several different processes which may cause such activity. Hot water mixes with mud and surface deposits. Mud volcanoes are associated with subduction zones and about 700 have been identified. Temperatures are much cooler in these processes than found at igneous volcanoes. The largest mud volcano structures are 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) in diameter and reach 700 metres (2,300 ft) in height.
So I continue reading down the page and hit the location areas of the known mud volcanos. This is where my jaw dropped and hit the floor.
An unnamed mud volcano 30 metres (98 ft) high and with a top about 100 metres (328 ft) wide, 24 kilometres (15 mi) off Redondo Beach, California, and 800 metres (2,620 ft) under the surface of the Pacific Ocean.
Remember the "millions of dead fish" last week? Tuesday, March 8, 2011 to be exact? That all happened right there, in Redondo Beach!!!!!!!!
L.A. Times - Millions Of Dead Fish
Obviously, all of these fish died right over the subduction zone. We all know what happened in Japan 3 days later. But now I'm wondering if California is going to be struck next. And if so, how soon???
Now to add to that, as Robin asked for more information on the 2005 eruption of the Azerbaijan mud volcanoes, here is some info for you:
Azerbaijan and its Caspian coastline are home to nearly 400 mud volcanoes, more than half the total throughout the continents. In 2001, one mud volcano 15 kilometres (9 mi) from Baku made world headlines when it suddenly started ejecting flames 15 metres (49 ft) high.
In Azerbaijan, eruptions are driven from a deep mud reservoir which is connected to the surface even during dormant periods, when seeping water still shows a deep origin. Seeps have temperatures up to 2 °C (3.6 °F) - 3 °C (5.4 °F) above the ambient temperature.
Here is an article from the USGS about mud volcanoes:

And here is an article about the correlations between earthquakes and large mud volcanos. From the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics at UCSD:
