April 5th, 2020 : Bounty of the Sea

The entire history of humans is interwoven with the bounty of the sea. In oral histories, scratched in stone,
reams of written history, fiction and poetry speak of the bounty.
It helped feed us, shelter us, bring light and comfort.



Now it gives us more and you don't need a boat or even a fishing pole. The sea delivers to the shore just
pick it up. Take all you want there's plenty more that hasn't made it to shore just hanging out in the depths
or on a tour of the currents and eddies of the world.



Bon Appétit.

OK, what are the very similar things in the lower left of the first group of four collections?
Even the link that has the pic calls it a mystery.
All I can think of are the little sliders that traverse drapes travel on, but there is no reason for them to be at sea.

I was thinking it was some standard piece of fishing gear?

They look like broken guyline cord adjusters.

Except for the round end with a hole in it the remaining fragments seen to have a lot of different shapes. That could be from different purposes or from patent circumventing. Not likely they were dumped together with that much variation so probably marine use. Could be guyline hardware or fishing net dohickeys, or whatever. Damifino.

Lot of different styles, in a lot of different materials, from a lot of different makers; but, you got the idea.

Still mystified. At the Twitter link (second one above) there is a lively discussion with many ideas but no agreement.
I think the plastic fish-factory ship conveyor belt theory has potential.
