OCEANSIDE, Calif. (AP) — For the second time in less than a week, a 'sea serpent' attracted gawkers on a Southern California beach.
This time the rare, snakelike oarfish washed up Friday afternoon in Oceanside.
U-T San Diego reported (http://bit.ly/19Zy2JS ) that it measured nearly 14 feet long and attracted a crowd of up to 75 people.
Oceanside police contacted SeaWorld San Diego, The Scripps Research Institute and theNational Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Someone from NOAA retrieved the carcass, which was cut into sections for later study.
While it's unusual to find the deep-water fish near shore, on Sunday a snorkeler off Catalina Island found an 18-foot-long oarfish and dragged it onto the beach with the help of a dozen other people.
According to the Catalina Island Marine Institute, oarfish can grow to more than 50 feet, making them the longest bony fish in the world.
They are likely responsible for sea serpent legends throughout history.

[h=2]Ancient Serpent Like Fish Predicts Earthquakes (Oarfish)[/h] Posted on October 15, 2013 by melbrake
October 13, 2013, an enormous Oarfish was found off the coast of California and according to Japanese folklore the Oarfish acts as a messenger of warning from the Sea God’s Palace. Whenever they appear on the beaches of Japan, an earthquake is imminent.
http://www.isciencemag.co.uk/blog/did-oarfish-predict-the-japanese-earthquake/
In March 2010 the Daily Telegraph and the Japan Times reported that unusually high numbers of Oarfish had been found on the coast of Japan. The Daily Telegraph in particular warned that this was a sign of impending doom. A year and one terrible earthquake later the claims could seem to have been justified.
The fish is called Regalecus russelii or the Streamer fish. It is a member of the Oarfish family and lives 1,000m beneath the sea and is rarely seen on the surface unless sick or dying. They also happen to look like some sort of mythical sea serpent.
It’s no wonder that there is a legend surrounding the fish.
There is no way of knowing, if and when, earthquakes quake but given the various visions we have been experiencing anything is possible and probable.

very interesting to say the least.
so they are messengers from the sea gods palace telling us that an earthquake is on the way.

maybe it has something to do with the Chargers winning last week .
