ummm?

i found a few of these along the beach, shimmery white oblong things filled with air (this one is stuck to a pebble). i'm assuming they have something to do with the herring spawn, or just the herring. can anyone enlighten me?

 

at the beach right now, the water is cloudy and every piece of seaweed washed ashore is covered in herring roe. lots of herring are washed up too, done with their spawn. seabirds and eagles are feasting, along with sea lions and seals out in the water. the fishermen are busy too. it's a curious cycle of spring, the herring spawn in the strait.
