  1. Hi there,
    My family & I encountered lots of jelly-egg like chains washed up on the beach here in New Zealand. My son scooped a net through the waves and half filled the net. I have a photo I could show you, I’d love to know what they are – would you be interested in seeing it?
    Many thanks
    Nic Howard
