Watch for Japanese transponders on Northwest coast

The Associated Press

ASTORIA, Ore. — Scientists are asking Oregon beachcombers and anglers to watch for bright orange transponders on the shore.

The floating instruments about the size of a 2-liter soda bottle were set in the ocean from Japanese ports in 2011 and 2012 to help research movement of debris from the 2011 tsunami.

The Daily Astorian reports anyone who finds a transponder should report it to the NOAA Marine Debris Program so the instrument can be returned to researchers.

Report location to Sam Chan, a watershed health specialist with Oregon State University Extension and Oregon Sea Grant at Samuel.Chan@oregonstate.edu or to the NOAA Marine Debris Program at http://marinedebris.noaa.gov/contact-us
