Items voluntarily cast into the sea (jettisoned) by the crew of a ship, usually in order to lighten it in an emergency, or to dispose of sensitive or prohibited materials aboard.
Goods that are floating on the water without having been thrown in deliberately, either accidentally dropped, or after a shipwreck. In modern usage, flotsam also includes driftwood, logs and other natural debris in oceans and waterways, much of which enters waterways through the action of shore surf, rain or wind. Flotsam on beaches often greatly increases after storms due to the debris brought there from riverbanks and drainage channels being flushed out, or marine equipment (including broken docks and piers) torn loose.
Goods that have been marked by being tied to a buoy so that its owner can find and retrieve it later. Some inevitably become flotsam.
