A man who fishes for a living caught the following off the coast of Northern California in 40 to 60 feet of water. Anyone know what it is?

Closer inspection I now think it is a pyrosoma of fire salps.

Sea cucumber was my guess, but we have since eliminated it. Pyrosome of fire salps is a possibility we're looking at, but we cannot find any images that closely resemble the one I have shown.

Once in a while, Mhykiel, I feel like complimenting you on erudition.

This is one of those times. ;)

I do understand how some people know the secret of making other people work for them. To use Google can be very hard work.

So, what makes you think I didn't use Google and other search engines, and just wasn't as successful or lucky as someone else?

I do understand how some people will jump to conclusions. To use common sense can be very hard work.
