In this March 22, 2013 photo provided by the Washington state Department of Fish and Wildlife, a striped beakfish is held for display above a water-filled well or bait box aboard a 20-foot-long Japanese boat that washed ashore recently at Long Beach, Wash. Biologists say five of the fish, plus other Japanese species of sea creatures, arrived alive, apparently hitching a ride across the Pacific Ocean on debris believed to have come from the March 2011 Japanese tsunami.
