State parks officials said the boat resembles debris from the 2011 tsunami in Japan, but they haven't pinpointed the vessel's origin.
It washed ashore Tuesday. A contractor hauled it away Wednesday.
The parks department said state biologists and Oregon State University scientists found specimens such as a non-native Japanese acorn barnacle.
It's expected to be weeks before other organisms are positively identified.
