Since 2010, a deep-sea fish rarely observed by humans has increasingly been appearing along shorelines around the world.  According to Japanese folklore, oarfish rise to the surface and beach themselves to warn humans of impending earthquakes.

Occupying ocean depths up to 3,000 feet below the surface, one of the earliest photographs of the reclusive oarfish was taken in 1996 - a dead specimen that washed ashore near San Diego, California.

The first live specimen wasn't filmed until in 2001, when U.S. Navy personnel in the Bahamas encountered an oarfish at sea while performing a buoy inspection.

Since Planet X, aka Nibiru, arrived in the inner solar system in 2003, reports of these extremely rare encounters have skyrocketed.

The Zetas explain:

"These deep ocean fish as all surface or land based animals are sensitive to stress the rock beneath them is enduring. Just as land animals flee the electromagnetic screeches that rock under pressure release, sea life likewise attempts to flee. For deep ocean fish, there is less of this screeching on the surface, because it is further away from the rock."  ZetaTalk GLP Live - March 6, 2010

By 2010, oarfish were appearing off the coasts of Japan, England and California. Shortly before the great 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami struck Japan, about 20 oarfish stranded themselves on beaches in the area according to Mark Benfield, a researcher at Louisiana State University.

Found along the California coast twice in 2013 and filmed swimming along the Mexican coast in 2014, sightings of struggling oarfish around the world soared in 2015 with at least ten reported incidents.  There have already been five documented encounters with oarfish in 2016 in the Philippines, Vietnam, Taiwan and New Zealand as of May 20.

"We have explained when oarfish were coming to the surface off Japan prior to large quakes in Japan that they were doing so to flee the electromagnetic screech that rock under pressure emits.  What does their appearance off the coast of southern California portend?  For several years, while describing the 7 of 10 plate movements and the pressure these movements would place upon the continents, we have described the N America bow. The center of this bow is approximately San Diego, ie southern California!  The N American Plate abuts the Pacific Plate at this point, with no minor plate to absorb the pressure. The Pacific is compressing, under continuous pressure to do so, and N America is bowing, in an unrelenting and increasing manner.

For the oarfish in the area, there is no escape! They come up from the deep and while on the surface, get caught in wave action that impels them to the beach."  ZetaTalk Chat Q&A - October 16, 2013



18-foot Oarfish Discovered off Southern California (Oct 13)

A marine science instructor's late-afternoon snorkel off the Southern California coast last Sunday was first met with shock and soon excitement when she discovered a gigantic oarfish, a deep-sea creature that remains little known to the science world and people outside.

Jasmine Santana was about 15 feet underwater when she found the 18-foot-long, silvery fish with reddish fins and eyes the size of a half-dollar staring at her from the sandy bottom. Realizing it was dead, she snatched the fish's tail, and using buoyancy and low tides, powered her way back on shore.

After a 15-minute swim dragging the 400-pound carcass, she needed help from 14 others to lift the fish out of the water at Toyon Bay, California.


Second Rare Oarfish Washes Up in Southern California (Oct 18)

For the second time in a week, the rare, serpentine oarfish has surfaced on a Southern California beach.
Beach goers at Oceanside Harbor crossed paths Friday afternoon with the deep-sea monster when its carcass washed ashore, Oceanside Police Officer Mark Bussey said. The fish measured 13 ½ feet long.

The discovery came just days after an 18-foot dead oarfish was found in the waters off Catalina Island.
“The call came out as a possible dead whale stranded on the beach, so we responded and saw the fish on the sand right as it washed up,” Bussey said.

Bussey added that people on the beach were “flabbergasted” to see the fish.

“It’s not the typical fish you see on shore,” he said, adding the oarfish probably weighed over 200 pounds.
But Bussey recognized the fish from the sighting less than a week ago off Catalina Island. Jasmine Santana, a science instructor for the Catalina Marine Institute was snorkeling off Toyon Bay when she discovered the body of the creature on a seabed.

The fish was far too big for Santana to carry alone; it took 15 people to bring the fish to shore.



Rare Oarfish Found Swimming Along Mexican Beach (Apr 7)

A pair of 15-ft oarfish apparently trying to beach themselves in the shallows off Mexico's Sea of Cortés were filmed by tourists.  The tourists filmed the oarfish in the shallow, coastal waters of Baja, Mexico while kayaking.  Less than 48 hours after the sightings, the fish became beached on nearby Isla San Francisco and died.

Rare Oarfish Washes Up In New Zealand (Apr 16)

A nearly 10-foot-long oarfish was found at a salt marsh near Otago Harbor in Aramoana on Thursday. The local who found the scaly animal called Department of Conservation service manager David Agnew, who said it’s the first time he's spotted such a creature in his 20 years on the job.  Agnew told the Daily Mail he had never even heard of an oarfish before.

“It’s incredibly rare to see them in New Zealand,” he said.

By Friday, the fish had disappeared, and it’s unclear if the body was washed away by the tide or removed by humans.

Hapless Oarfish Snagged by Fishing Boat off California (Jun 29)

A fishing boat passenger unknowingly snagged an oarfish and brought it to the surface off Catalina Island yesterday.  Even though it was snagged, this is the first ever report of an oarfish caught on rod and reel.
This marks the sixth time this year the extremely rare oarfish has been encountered by humans.  The crew tried to gaff and raise the 20-foot fish to the boat. The soft flesh only tore, and they had to give up the effort. 


Another Rare Oarfish Appears in Philippines (Jul 23)

For the seventh time in six months, the extremely rare deep water oarfish has made an appearance.
Julie Miranda was fishing near Antique in Barangay Indalog on Thursday when he saw a shark chasing a big fish.  Shortly after, the shark swam off and the big fish started to float.  Miranda loaded the fish onto his boat and brought it to shore.  But the fish was no ordinary find. It was a 10-foot long oarfish weighing 31 pounds.

“It was our first time to see a very big and very long fish in this town. Even the old villagers do not know the local name of this fish,” said Lourdes Sarad, municipal agricultural officer of Tobias Fornier.


Third Oarfish in Three Weeks Found in Philippines (Aug 13)

Another oarfish, the third so far in a span of three weeks, was caught by fishermen in Antique’s Belison town on Thursday afternoon.  The dying oarfish, measuring 12 feet and nine inches long and three inches in diameter, was found by fisherman Pablo Crespo at 1:20 p.m. in the small canal by the shore of Barangay Maradiona, Belison, some 15 kilometers away from the capital town of San Jose.

The fisherman called other residents and they pulled out the oarfish from the water. The fish was still alive, but was so weak and died a few minutes later. 

Barangay Chairman Raymundo Quintayo said that the barangay folk were not familiar with the oarfish as it was the first time they saw one. They called up the local police and turned over the fish.  Weighing 44 pounds, it was so far the biggest oarfish found in the shores of Antique.

On July 23 at around 6:30 in the morning fishermen in Anini-y town also found a wounded oarfish measuring more than eight feet.  A week later, another one was found by fishermen in Bugasong town.

Fisherman Lee Chung-cheng left locals stunned when he pulled two giant oarfish from the water.
It is the first time that Mr Lee, from Taiwan's small coastal fishing town Taimali, or any of his peers have caught this fish, so everyone who witnessed them were unsurprisingly stunned.

He said: "I've been fishing for almost 30 years and this is a first for me - and somehow I managed to get two at once.

"Locals have captured all sorts of things, even whale sharks, but never something like this.”

Both of Mr Lee’s captures are 14 feet long and weighing over 100 pounds.

7th Oarfish of 2017 Found in Philippines (Apr 9)

Another oarfish was found on the shore in Cabadbaran, Agusan del Norte, on April 9.

Measured by fishermen, the oarfish was almost 14 feet long.

This marks the third oarfish since March 28 and the seventh overall this year in the Philippines which has been hammered by earthquakes in recent days.

Over 2,000 earthquakes far have now been associated with the Batangas “earthquake swarm” that started with a 5.5-magnitude temblor on April 4.

The “swarm” is still ongoing, in “small-sized earthquakes, some of which are felt,” and may possibly go on for weeks, said Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (Phivolcs) director Renato Solidum Jr. in a phone interview on Tuesday, a week after the first quake in the swarm hit.

5th Oarfish in Philippines in 2 Months (Mar 29)

An oarfish was found ashore in the town of Padre Burgos, Wednesday morning.

The huge fish was seen at a shoreline in Pook, Sta. Sofia.

At least 5 separate incidents of oarfish stranding in different beaches across the country have been reported since February 8th this year.

Some residents have feared the surfacing of oarfish, as Japanese lore links the appearance of the specie in shallow waters as a warning for a forthcoming calamity.

An oarfish was found in Surigao two days before a 6.7 magnitude quake devastated the province.

Oarfish Found on New Zealand Beach (Jan 26)

When Sharon Robinson and Jenny Cox went for a walk on an Abel Tasman Beach Thursday morning, they didn't expect to find a rare 3-meter-long oarfish. 

"We saw something shiny on the edge of the water and thought it was a piece of a boat and walked up and there it was.

"I've never seen anything like it. It looked like a huge lure, it was pretty spectacular."

Robinson said the oarfish was "too big" to carry back to the campground, so instead they went to the Department of Conservation office early the next morning to report their find.

Te Papa Museum collection manager fishes Andrew Stewart had been interested in collecting the oarfish, but when he went down on Friday morning, it wasn't there.

Oarfish Swim Ashore in SW Australia (Nov 18)

Busselton resident Karen Smith was walking along the shore near the Busselton Jetty on Friday when she spotted something peculiar in the shallows.

Very long, silvery and looking more like a snake than a fish, she sent a picture to her colleague at Busselton's Underwater Observatory and was told the unusual animals were oarfish.

"One was still floating around under the jetty but we did not think it would survive."

As Ms Smith tried to help the stranded oarfish, Donna Moule and her brother Mark came upon the scene and saw her covering the creatures with sea water to keep them alive.

"With no regard for his own safety or the fact that he would spend the next 3 hours sat in wet jeans my brother returned both oar fish to the sea," Ms Moule said.

"The small one swiftly regained energy and disappeared into deeper waters, the larger one struggled a little, but slowly swam away; we were hopeful that both would be ok!"

In a video shot by Ms Moule, Mark can be seen helping one oar fish get past waves breaking on the beach so it can reach safer depths.
