This June 7, 2012 photo provided by the Oregon Park and Recreation Department shows an exotic mussel attached to a dock float that washed up on Agate Beach near Newport, Ore. Scientists are worried that other debris from the 2011 tsunami in Japan could represent a new way for invasive species to reach American shores. (AP Photo/Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, ho)
