Woman cuts open herring fish to find strange, glowing growths inside

A woman in the eastern Kazakhstan city of Semey, purchased a fresh herring fish from her local market, brought it home, and began to fillet it when she noticed something odd. The fish’s insides glowed in the dark! According to Gulbarshin Kaydarova, inside the fish she found “strange growths” that gave off a bluish-green glowing light. Fearing radiation, she threw the fish away but not before making a video that aired on Kazakhstan local news. Of course, local health officials sought to calm public fears and publicly announced that there was nothing to worry about and the fish was safe to eat. Residents in the area (like residents near Fukushima, Japan) have a reason to be worried about bizarre animal mutations and strange growing growths in their

Ethiopian residents stunned as fish fall from sky over drought-stricken Dire Dawa

Residents of Dire Dawa in eastern Ethiopia welcomed the much needed rain in their drought-stricken area this week, but were not expecting the oddity that came with it. According to the Ethiopian Herald, at around 11:30 AM on January 31, 2016, fish began to rain from the sky over the peasant neighborhoods of Dechatu, Finfinne, Adada, and Eyawale Woreda. The Ministry of Livestock and Fishery Public Relations sent a team to the area to examine the phenomena which residents referred to as "a blessing from Almighty God". They say it is the first occurrence of its kind in the country. Oddly, there were no strong winds or typhoons in the area, conditions which typically accompany this type of phenomena. In fact, witnesses say the weather was fair right

Fish with human feet (including five toes) caught off Caribbean coast by 74-year-old local fisherman

The aquatic horror pictured above was caught of the coast of Windward, on the Island of Carriacou in the Caribbean by 74-year-old fisherman, Hope McLawrence. According to McLawrence: “This has shocked me to a considerable extent since I never thought that a creature like this even existed, much less in the harbor of these shallow, friendly waters!” McLawrence said the fish has two feet with toes, no fins, and “a perfect human nose above its mouth” (sorry, no picture of the fish's "human nose" could be found). Our best guess right now is a frogfish, a predator known to eat just about anything it can fit into its mouth. Still, I won’t rule out nuclear-tainted, biological freak of some unknown species. Very weird. Sources: Mirror, Metro UK, Wikipedia

Pacific Coast fishermen provide proof (photos) that Fukushima is contaminating U.S. fish with radioactive material

  Tumors on Pacific Coast fish cause concern for local fishermen When Hirasaka Hiroshi caught this terrifying large fish in the waters off northern Japan (see photo above), the catch added substance to Japanese fishermen’s concerns over the effects of the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident on local fish populations. Now, just days after we learned that radiation from the devastated Fukushima nuclear power plant is much worse than expected (exposure at the plant can kill a person in less than an hour), a geoengineering researcher reports that fishermen from the United States Pacific Coast are growing increasingly alarmed as they catch more and more fish filled with bloody, cancerous tumors. The situation is concerning because unlike people, tumors are rarely found on fish. In fact, up until the past

Toxic Red Tide threatens Florida beaches and marine life

  The Weather Channel is reporting that a massive toxic red tide is killing marine life off the coast of Florida. According to the Weather Channel, the large blooms of red algae are located about five miles off St. Petersburg and measure an astonishing 60 miles wide by 100 miles long. Once local fisherman told The Weather Channel: “It boils up in the propeller wash like boiled red Georgia clay. It's spooky.” Red tide kills fish, manatees and other marine life by releasing a toxin that paralyzes their central nervous system. The algae also foul beaches and can be harmful to people who inhale the algae's toxins when winds blow onshore or is dispersed into the air by crashing waves. Skin contact with red tide water can cause

It rained fish in Sri Lanka (again)

Villagers scooped up buckets full of the valuable commodity after it rained fish in west Sri Lanka on May 6, 2014. Villagers in the district of Chilaw said they heard something heaving falling on the roofs of their homes and businesses and were surprised when they rain outside to find fish falling from the sky. The villagers collected over 100 lbs. of the edible fish - many of which were still alive and squirming. A similar incident occurred in Sri Lanka in 2012. BBC weather experts explained how fish can rain from the sky: “The most likely cause of this unusual event probably relates to the formation of a tornado. Tornadoes tend to form in areas where large differences in both temperature, humidity and wind speed and
