Five live fish native to Japan were discovered inside a derelict boat in Washington state that is thought to have drifted across the Pacific after being hit by the March 11, 2011, tsunami, according to the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife.

A local resident found the 6-meter-long boat on the Long Beach Peninsula on March 22 and took one of the fish to Long Beach City Hall. That fish is now being exhibited in the Seaside Aquarium in Seaside, Oregon.
