    Wow! Is this a #Pteropod? Check out the neighbouring frame: APK00078y3 (or a bent crustacean?)

    A shelless one, right? I don't see its "wings," but I'm not sure what else it could be.

    Very difficult to tell. It could be a bent shrimp facing the camera but I don't see antennas, I does not really look like a pteropod.

    @jo.irisson Thanks. As for the antennae missing, I meant this type of Shrimp APK0005ohw just with closed fin, its antennae are short..

    @mkmcguir I agree that it looks very much like the side view of a fish. But the caudal fin is not right, the pectoral fins would be huge...

    ...and the species with such huge fins don't have such round heads. Plus I don't see a trace of a mouth

    Of course this is all pretty advanced criteria, and we clearly don't expect this level of detail. But if it is not a fish, then what is it.

    Based on yshish images and my previous impressions, I would go for a shrimp-like organism.
