The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department says the work to remove a tsunami dock from Agate Beach could begin as soon at July 30. The 66-foot dock will be dismantled and hauled away from the beach north of Newport under an $84,000 contract with Ballard Diving and Salvage of Vancouver, Wash. The dock washed ashore June 5 and officials confirmed it had been swept away from Japan in the March 2011 tsunami.  (AP Photo/Rick Bowmer, File)

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)
