A dead 12-foot-long oarfish washed ashore in Barangay Rojales in Carmen, Agusan Del Norte.
Experts say that oarfish being found along the shoreline could be a sign of an impending earthquake. Oarfish, and other deep-sea marine life, being found near shallow waters could indicate the presence of violent seismic activity affecting the ocean floor.
This was the 6th oarfish found along the shoreline since January.
According to seismologist Kiyoshi Wadatsumi in an article published by the Japan Times, deep-sea marine life are more sensitive to the movement of fault lines. Oarfish typically live up to 1,000 feet below sea level.
Many residents of Agusan Del Norte agree with expert opinion regarding a potential disaster. The residents who found the oarfish promptly buried it.
