The earthquake triggered a destructive tsunami wave up to 33 feet which hit the coast of Japan within minutes after the earthquake and traveled up to six miles inland. Tsunami warnings and evacuations were issued along the Pacific coast in at least 20 other countries, including North and South America. The United States imported agricultural products worth $557 million from Japan in 2010, a fraction of the $82 billion in U.S. agricultural imports from all sources[]. Among the largest categories of agricultural imports from Japan were miscellaneous horticultural products, such as mixed herbal teas, yeasts, and starches (potato, rice, etc.); grain and feeds (baked goods); and crude and natural drugs (enzymes). In addition, the United States imported fishery products worth $236 million from Japan in 2010, 1.6 percent of total U.S. fishery product imports. Frozen processed fish was the leading import of all fishery product imports. Japan is the 12th largest exporter of fish to the United States.
