Thousands of fish have beached themselves on the shore of Kg Tabisan in Sabah’s eastern Lahad Datu, Malaysia, which is prompting a discussion among locals over whether this is good omen or a bad omen at the years end. The Star Online article quotes a local villager Suzila Abdullah who claims this phenomenon has been happening for the last three years but “it is different this year because the number of fishes are exceptionally high. In the past, most would have been scooped up by the end of the day but today there is still a lot more left.“
As can be seen in the map below, Malaysia’s shores share the same water as Japan, where the crippled Fukushima nuclear plant continues to dump radioactive water in the ocean.
The great earthquake and tsunami that devastated Fukushima happened in 2011, making this the third December since the nuclear meltdowns.
Coincidence that for three years this odd phenomenon has been happening on the shores of Malaysia or a sign from the sea life indicating how contaminated their waters are?
