Gonzalez-Reyna J, 1956. A new volcano [possible Baha Peninsula submarine volcano]. Proc 8th Pacific Sci Cong, 2: 25.

A submarine eruption was reported on July 20, 1953 off the western coast of Baja California. Sailors on fishing boats observed great numbers of dead fish and mud bubbling up at sea 2 km from San Cristóbal Island. The captain of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography vessel "Horizon" reported similar phenomena at another point near the island of Cedros, not far from San Cristóbal Bay (Gonzalez-Reyna 1956). The origin of these events is uncertain.
