The fly swatters found on Kodiak were believed to be debris from last year's Japanese earthquake and tsunami. But the Kodiak Daily Mirror reports that they are from a shipping container that went overboard almost four months ago.
Team Sports America received word that the container ship carrying its products from China lost several shipping containers after a rogue wave hit the vessel in a storm. A cable on the ship broke and a whole row of containers got loose in the Pacific Ocean.
It is likely the containers were on the Cosco Yokohama, a container vessel traveling from Asia to Prince Rupert, British Columbia.
