As documented by a recent LPAC video on the Rim of Fire, anomalous behavior of animals, including fish, often occurs before the outbreak of major earthquakes. Geologist Berkland cited a number of recent unusual fish sightings which contributed to his forecast of a heightened possibility of a major earthquake occurring between March 19 and March 27 on the US Pacific coast.
