Tsunami fish becomes local celebrity in Oregon

A striped beakfish from Japan has become the main attraction at the Seaside Aquarium in Oregon. The tiny fish, which travelled across the Pacific Ocean on a boat during the March 2011 Japanese tsunami, has become a local celebrity. The fish, which lives in shallow water in Asia, was found alive on a boat that washed up on the west coast at Long Beach, Washington in March. Amazingly, the fish is thought to have survived on other organisms living inside the bait box it was contained in since washing up on shore after the 2011 tsunami.   Other fish found on the washed up ship were euthanized as local authorities feared they would become an invasive species, but employees at the Seaside Aquarium managed to save the tiny striped beakfish. "They didn't want to turn it loose," said Keith Chandler, a curator at Seaside Aquarium. "And they didn't want to let it die." “When I first saw it, it was in a bucket at City Hall," added Chandler. "It's pretty cool. It's about 4 inches long. We're trying to get it different things to eat ... and it may have eaten, but it's a shy little guy... The big mystery is whether there are more out there. If it was following the boat and feeding other fish off it ...That's the big unknown." The black and white striped fish has now become the star attraction at Oregon’s Seaside Aquarium with visitors to flocking to the aquarium to marvel at the fish which survived such an interesting journey.
