All Japanese ports have closed, with discharging operations halted, after the country was hit on Friday by an 8.9 magnitude quake and tsunami, shippers said.

"It's a big mess. All discharge operations are suspended in the area," said a shipbroker.

TV footage showed at least one large vessel grounded in northern Japan due to the tsunami, a second Tokyo-based shipbroker said.
