    Thanks to all for your responses.  I did see quite a few schools of
    fish the next morning, so perhaps it is fish, or krill, or both.
    I just saw the new Russell Crowe movie "Master & Commander: The Far
    Side of the World" and alas, it has received the full Hollywood
    treatment.  Patrick O'Brian's books are 5% battles and 95% everything
    else.  This movie has reversed these and seems like 95% battles and
    gore to 5% music and everything else.  I do not plan to see the movie
    again or to buy it.  The books are infinitely better.
