In a photo provided by the U.S. Coast Guard the unmanned Japanese fishing vessel Ryou-un Maru dirfts northwest in the Gulf of Alaska approximately 164 miles southwest of Baranof Island Wednesday April 4, 2012.  The vessel has been adrift since it was launched by the tsunami caused by the magnitude-9.0 earthquake that struck Japan last year.  The Coast Guard is monitoring the vessel, which is currently considered a hazard to navigation.  (AP Photo/Petty Officer 1st Class Sara Francis, U.S. Coast Guard)

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)
