Vessel washed ashore in Oregon taken to landfill
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.
