This is an old video, reporting strange fish seen after the tsunami on 26th December 2004
I wanted to know if anyone else has heard of anything like this? Or if it is a known hoax.
I have looked around but can't seem to find any other reports.
IMO This seems to me like it could be true because a lot of the deep ocean is unexplored - some of these fish are likely known species, I wouldnt know
- I'm no marine biologist.. so I thought I would see if there are any ATS experts that could shed some light on this.
Are there any reports of anything similar from this recent Japan Tsunami?
- I realised if there are they would likely be drowned out by the reports that deal with human life. By bringing this to peoples attention I hope to
get clarification of it this is a known hoax/species and get people to keep their ears open for similar reports.

Either hoax, or those aren't actually fish they found after the tsunami, but instead fish species found through deep sea exploring or fisherman who
found those in the middle of the ocean. Like you said, that is the only video of it,

apparently this is common for these deep sea fish to get washed up after an earthquake... there doesn't necessarily need to be a tsunami for this to
happen strange fish after earthquake
It is a bit sad to think Japan will focused on hoax fish stories at a time like this. While I have not seen the species in the video before, I have
seen similar type fish from deep sea explorations. As for why, perhaps these where the fish that got caught up in the current that formed as it is
deep in the sea where the tsunami started. They may have tried to escape but it was just too powerful.
They are real true to form fish species all of which are know to science. To me this video is just a mash up from various scources.Made by someone
with a creative mind as far as the supposed backgroud storty .One of those type that likes crytozoology mysteries .
I think this is just one of those deep sea bottom feeders (the huge eyes give it away) and I've seen weirder on sea life documentaries. You won't
get them in many Western fish markets and most trawlers probably throw them overboard for the seagulls but there's one that lives in the deep
Atlantic, I forget the name but looks a bit like a scrawny deformed haddock, they use in France for school meals and fish soups. I saw TV chef Rick
Stein from UK talking about them once.
