There must be a story in this although it may have been done. I genuinely laughed out loud at the bit towards the end "The owners of the port in Misawa have said they do not want it back"
Dock from Tsunami washed up in Oregon

Nowhere to dock it, I suppose.
Better still if it had been one of the nuclear reactors that washed up on the shore.
"The owners of the reactor say they don't want it back"
It strikes me as odd that they sound suprised by it, surely it would have been visible from the air or is it a new dastardly Japanese stealth harbour! as they song would go "What's that comming over the sea is it a harbour, is it a harbour!"
Ah - makes more sense now. Had read it as DUCK from Tsunami washed up in Oregon
All a bit sad really, when you look at the area of debris that was washed away from Northern Japan in a few minutes. Brings home - yet again - the scale of the tsunami.
I'm not saying invasive species like starfish and algae aren't a real threat to marine ecosystems, but the article seemed eerily focussed on the wrong thing for me - Oregonians shuddering "why is this happening to us? this is getting serious now. What if I'd been surfing?"
Maybe I'm being over sensitive, but was there almost a whiff of blame? Like Misawa should take better care of its large debris?
Starfish ARE invasive Golgo - we've got some just moved in next door and there are some living down the road above the Co-Op....so I would say they ARE a threat.
You can't blame that on the tsunami, it's the benefits they're after.
A lot of average fish are upset at starfish getting all the limelight.
I tried a Nick Clegg nib on this but it didn't really work. Mainly because I am a techy and not a writer, I suspect ! ..
