It does look like an egg sack of some kind... Maybe part of a jellyfish that broke off?

Whale booger? Hard to tell without scale or location. Are the bends real (i.e., permanent) or just because its position on the deck. There is jellyplankton all across the animal kingdom in the ocean. I'll ruminate on it and see what rises to the top.

Hi SF,
It might be a chaetognath: clear cylindrical body, small eyes, small mouth (orange structure) at the narrow end). But those pictures show an organism that is chunkier than what I associate with chaetognaths and I really can't see the jaws that should be present in that orange thing (if it is the head). More cogitation.

I may have to consult Ms. Cabezon, who is also a marine biologist. [Why couldn't you have a picture of a colorful sculpin for me to identify???];)
