(NaturalNews) Two days before the massive 9.0+ magnitude earthquake struck off the coast of Japan, millions of dead fish were found mysteriously blanketing waters at King Harbor Marina in Redondo Beach, Calif. (http://www.naturalnews.com/031645_dead_fish_...).

And in a similar turn of events, millions of dead fish were recently discovered floating in China's Minjiang River -- just a coincidence, or a sign of worse things to come?

What's on Xiamen, a Chinese news source, reports that countless millions of dead fish were found floating on a large portion of the Minjiang River stretching from Huangtian in Gutian County, to Shuikou, an area that represents the largest grass carp breeding region in China's Fujian Province. As many as nine million fish have reportedly died in Huangtian alone, thus far.

"All the fish in Huangtian floated onto the river on August 27, 28 and 29," said Wei Maoci to Chinese reporters. Maoci, who owns his own fish farm, was the first of many farmers to experience massive and unexplained fish deaths and he reportedly lost the equivalent of roughly $470,000 worth of fish as a result.

"Fish started to die even as we gave more oxygen. Some 100 cages of fish died within two hours. We all lost a family fortune. Those with small enterprises (supported by fish farming) lost at least 200,000 to 300,000 yuan (roughly $31,000 to $47,000)."

Some fish farmers reportedly believe pollution runoff from nearby industries, including from drug company factories that produce antibiotics, might be responsible for killing the fish. But Chinese environmental authorities in the area have stated that the fish died of "low dissolved oxygen," for which they do not have an explanation.

Since the fish die-off in China occurred, no earthquakes of a similar magnitude to the record Japan quake have occurred. However, there was a 6.5 magnitude quake in Mongolia that occurred on August 27, as well as a 6.8 magnitude quake in Southeast Asia on August 30. The largest to have occurred was a 7.1 magnitude quake that struck near Alaska September 2 (http://www.iris.edu/seismon/).

While there is obviously no proven scientific connection between mass animal die-offs of this nature and seismic activity, their eerily coincidental timing with one another is, at the very least, worthy of further consideration.
