Salvage laws may apply but i am unsure as to how that whole process works i think unless its historical or gold bullion it might go back to owners (like that gold going back to spain) but im pretty sure if you remove it from the area it might just be yours under salvage laws(does any one know if they apply to vessles that are on the beach vs recovered from open sea)

I wonder how all this garbage is going to affect the wildlife and our food chain..Oprah did a show awhile back about an island of garbage, twice the size of Texas somewhere between the West Coast and Japan. It was also being said allot of the debris could still contain radioactive water. This will end up being a massive clean up and i wouldn't want anything that washed up on shore knowing it came from so much human tragedy..peace,sugarcookie1
