The krill is likely Euphausia pacifica, the squid are likely Loligo opalescens. A thin cloud of pink krill gathers at the ocean surface, where it is likely to be preyed upon by sharks, fish, birds and whales, Loligo opalescens, Euphausia pacifica, San Diego, California Spiny brittle stars (starfish), Ophiothrix spiculata Spiny brittle stars (starfish), Ophiothrix spiculata Squid egg casings.
