Matt Ring Shows Us A Seaweed Ball

Matt Ring aboard the Stanley Thomas shows us these seaweed balls.  They are almost perfectly round and made of seaweed with little sand mixed in.

Mark Ring who has been lobstering for over 30 years tells me he has never seen them before and Toby Burnham who brought some in a couple days earlier said the same thing, that he had never seen anything like them either.

They are sponge-like and when squeezed will let out a little water and if you throw it on the deck it will flatten out a little with a splat like landing.
