No highly invasive species of plants or animals were found in the first look at the dock that washed ashore last week near Forks.

This ocean-drifting dock washed ashore in a remote section of coast in the Olympic National Park, between LaPush and the mouth of the Hoh River.

The Ecology Department says a marine debris team that reached the dock Friday identified nearly 30 species in all.

The dock is believed to be debris from the March 2011 tsunami in Japan, but that has not been officially confirmed.
