    Salp is another kind of Tunicates, like Doliolids. Read the discussion here: APK0005w1i There are some pics in colours 😃

    Because of their striation I would think Doliolids. You are used to seeing the smaller ones, but those small ones are close to the surface.

    These ones are deeper and this is compatible with them being larger.

    That said it could also be another sort of tunicate, like Salps.

    They are also present in the Med, but not very abundant in summer (when the images were shot).
