    Looking at the amount or artifacts left am I right in thinking that removing them is prohibited.

    I would regard the lagoon as having status as a graveyard.

    Would you remove 'artifacts' from a graveyard?

    Shipwrecks of Truk
    For more than two years after the war, oil from the sunken ships covered the beaches and reefs. Truk is best wreck diving in the world overall because of the numerous wrecks and their preservation and beauty. Depths vary from the surface in excess of 200 feet. You can penetrate into the wrecks but you can't remove any artifacts. Caustic substances like high octane aviation fuel, oils, gasoline and acid exist on many of the wrecks. Explosives, mines, munitions, detonators, torpedoes and shells are still "live". The wrecks of Truk Lagoon are war graves. Strict policies exist that prevent the removal of any artifacts or marine life from the wrecks. Fines and a possible jail sentence await those who disobey. The Trukese hope preserve their lagoon as an underwater living monument and museum of the war.
