Giant Squid Seen As An 'omen' By Japanese Fisherman

Recommended Posts

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/weird-news/giant-squid-seen-as-an-omen-by-japanese-fisherman-9140819.html

An increase in the number of giant squid being caught along the Sea of Japan coast is leading fisherman to fear it may be some kind of omen.

A giant squid was taken to the Himi fishing port in Toyama Prefecture on 4 January, and another was discovered in a net off Sado Island in Niigata Prefecture on 8 January, according to The Japan Times.

Three squid were taken to Sado and Himi that measured between three and four metres long, the newspaper has reported.

The two longest tentacles of one of the creatures caught in the town of Iwami in Tottori Prefechure were missing, meaning it could have spanned eight metres prior to its capture.

Earthquake?

There have been quite a few reports of oarfish from all over the world recently. Apparently the Japanese think that sightings are a sign of impending disaster as they usually live in the pelagic deepness.

I suspect the explanation is that global media means we get to hear of and see pics of things that went unreported outside of the local Shitkicker Gazette in the past. Or maybe global warming is driving them from the depths. In which case maybe the Japanese are right.

you mean they escape the cold depths because it is warming by swimming into the warmer upper layers?

Erm, climate change, the depths are getting colder, or something like that.

Whatever your argument it's wrong.

I read it was too cold down there, so they are floating upwards! :blink:
