This guys sit in the Stennis Space Center too:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Data_Buoy_Center


--- Quote ---The National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) is a part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Weather Service (NWS). NDBC designs, develops, operates, and maintains a network of data collecting buoys and coastal stations. The NBDC is located in southern Mississippi as a tenant at the John C. Stennis Space Center, a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) facility.

Thus the NDBC shipped a research buoy to Croatia, the Croatia Oceanic Weather guys threw the buoy into the Adriatic sea, and the fisherman has got it  :-DD

The portal which published the story "morski.hr" had huge hacker attacks and didn't work properly for 24 hours.

The Croatian fisherman was asking for covering expenses and obviously they were bit confused. After a while, he got his money and they got the device back.

They first tried to offer "a promise" but the fisherman was insisting, first money. I think that the return was 20.000 HRK which is about 3000$. It's about 3-4 months average salary in Croatia.
