Debris from Japan's 2011 earthquake and tsunami disaster continues to wash ashore on the west coast of the United States. The strangest item found so far: live fish. The fish, which live off the coast of Japan and Hawaii, apparently made their way across the Pacific in a drifting skiff. Of the five fish that made the journey, one is still alive and is being kept at the Seaside Aquarium in Oregon. (AP)
