Invertebrates and fish hitched a ride on debris such as boats, buoys, and fragments of docks
Hundreds of marine species native to the Japan coast have been washing ashore on Hawaii and the West Coast of the U.S., according to new research published in Science magazine. The animals--nearly 300 invertebrate species including mollusks, worms, bryozoans, and others--hitched rides on plastic or fiberglass debris after the massive 2011 tsunami and, surprisingly, survived multi-year trips across the world’s biggest ocean. Some were still arriving in spring 2017--and, with the journey outlasting individual species’ life spans, some of the organisms landing on the West Coast were the grandchildren of the ones that left Japan. It may be years before the effects of these invasive species on West Coast ecosystems can be known.
