    other than the 3 copepods, what is the big circular creature?

    It looks like an unusually shaped #Radiolarian #colony. These colonies are made of round organisms called Radiolarians (they belong among Protists). These colonies are extremely variable in size and shape but appears as a string or mass of circular bodies contained within a transparent border.
