Huge shoals of sardines, anchovies and mackerel appeared near the shore on one of the beaches in the Mexican resort town on March 11 in Friday. Fish "packed" so tightly that the top near the surface looks like an oil slick.
Delighted fishermen rushed to the wooden boats left their nets, and just started to draw the fish in buckets. Shoal of sardines was seen as an ominous warning sign of a possible tsunami, since these fish are seldom appropriate to the shoreline. Latin American countries have warned the population along the Pacific coast of the precautionary measures.
