The news video mentioned Japanese lore that says it is an omen of earthquakes.

Oarfish are very meek and gentle beings. Humans can learn from them.

This article was interesting too :)
"According to Japanese mythology, the oarfish is a messenger from the dragon god of the sea. In concordance with the messenger theme, in the two years preceding the Tohoku earthquake in March 2011, an unusual number of oarfish stranded themselves on the coastal beaches of Japan. The Japan Times on March 6, 2010, reported that in folklore the fish comes to the beach as an omen of an earthquake."

Probably safe if it is a deep-water fish.
