Taiwanese fishermen captured a huge herring king on video

This fish is called a doomsday fish because of the dire predictions associated with its appearance. In Japanese mythology, throwing these creatures ashore means bad luck for people. Some evidence suggests that these fish appeared on the beaches of Japan before the 2011 Fukushima earthquake and tsunami, reinforcing the belief in their paranormal properties.

However, these fish are actually thrown to the surface of the sea when they are no longer able to swim on their own.

Despite the lack of scientific evidence linking these fish to earthquakes, there is no need to worry. Most likely, these fish simply have a tendency to surface when their physical condition deteriorates and they are picked up by the water current, which explains why they are so often found dead.

The video shows that this sea creature is much larger than any of the humans. Fishermen estimated the length of this individual encountered in Taiwan to be about 6.5 feet or about 2 meters. But it wasn’t just the size of the fish that surprised observers. At least two round holes were found on its body.
