That’s an old story, but I missed it.

On Nov. 6th, fishermen caught a huge, 5-meter-long (16.4 feet) oarfish off the coast of Dong’ao in Yilan County, eastern Taiwan.

More importantly, the deep sea fish was found just before two earthquakes struck the area. What a coincidence isn’t it?

Oh yeah! I forgot that thi fish is also known as “earthquake fish” in south-east Asia, because according to local lore, they surface from the deep just before a major earthquake, or two in this special case. 

The two following earthquakes:

  • M5.4 at 2:36 a.m. on Nov. 6th, 30.3 kilometers southeast of Taitung County Hall.
  • M5.4 at 9:40 a.m., on Nov. 6th, 107.8 kilometers east-northeast of Taitung County Hall.

According to fishermen, such a giant fish is unusual in that fishing spot. They are usually about 1-2 meters (3.3 – 6.6 feet) long, not 5 (16.4 feet).
