Letter returned 15 years later.... by fish

A letter that a young Japanese girl sent into the sky in a balloon over 15 years ago has been found on a fish hauled from 1,000 metres below the Pacific.

"A fisherman found the still legible piece of paper sitting on a sticky flatfish in his catch on Thursday, along with a torn-off string and the fragment of a red balloon.... The sender, Natsumi Shirahige, and her friends released letters as part of events to mark the school's 120th anniversary, which was in 1993."
