In Reply to: UFO....Connected Rows of Clear "Egg-like" sacks picked off the bottom???? posted by jas on August 07, 2002 at 09:19:40:

Here's a link to a good article from California Diving News on these strange critters.

: ATTENTION MARINE BIOLOGISTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
: This is the 3rd time I've seen these clear sacks. I caught some drifting for halibut last week. This was a huge system of sacs maybe 6ft long. Felt like a 20lb fish at the end of my line (though no fight of course).
: The sacs look like they might be egg sacks, but for what animal. The time before, the sacs were smaller than these. This time, each sac was about 4-5" long. Look like embryos inside but I could be wrong. UFO UFO UFO!!! Has Paradise Cove turned into some alien underwater breading ground?
