On August 11, NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer discovered and explored a Japanese cargo ship,  Amakasu Maru No.1, near Wake Atoll in the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument. Using remotely operated vehicle (ROV) Deep Discoverer, the team visually documented the wreckage, the condition of the ship, and living communities growing on and around the site.
