About salps We have had many calls over the past few weeks, of fisher- man and divers wondering what are those things in the water? Are they a type of jellyfish? No, they are satps! (See the photo below.) Salps are common in temper- ate cold seas, where they can be seen on surface, singly or in a long string of colonies. They often appear in Antartica, in deep waters. Salp populations have been on an increase. The transpar- ent, tubular animal can grow from l to l0 centimeters. They have been successful due to the phytopiankton blooms. Salps can budd off clones. During blooms, they either get heavy and sink to the bottom, or they land on beaches with slimey mats of their bodies. They are far out looking, and very colorful when close up.
