  2. Invasive species from Japan ride tsunami debris to American shores

    Millions of hitchhikers are being carried to American coasts on large pieces of debris set adrift by last year’s Japanese tsunami. Now scientists are concerned that these invading organisms – both plants and animals – could disrupt marine ecosystems in their new homes.

    Over 5 million tons of debris washed out to sea after the tsunami caused by the massive 9.0 earthquake that struck Japan in March 2011. An estimated 1.5 million tons of that debris has traveled across the Pacific Ocean to the stretch of North American coastline between Alaska and Southern California. Some of the biggest pieces of garbage – docks, ships and parts of houses, buildings or cars – have been discovered with shellfish, algae, plankton and barnacles on board.
