there's a bit of anger at the moment because the relatives werent told that bodies had been located, they found out via the news on the TV when the footage of bodies in the ocean was accidently played.. here's the raw footage- probably needs a warning on it for viewing.
Evacuation of the bodies are unable to be carried out due to bad weather and the waves which are 2-3m high are the main obstacles which hampered the process. if conditions permit tonight the operation will continue with flood lights. Tonight, the largest piece of debris will be removed and hopefully tomorrow morning the site would be evacuated and the divers can reach the aircraft. After the bodies are attended to at Pangkalan Bun, they will be moved to hospitals in Surabaya for identification. There will be another update on the evacuation progress tomorrow morning at 8 or 9am.
There are already several ships on site, including a singapore ship. None of the victims are alive.

Surely as least some plastic cups will float?
While the Brazilian Navy removed the first major wreckage and two bodies from the sea within five days of the accident, the BEA's (Bureau d'Enquêtes et d'Analyses pour la Sécurité de l'Aviation Civile) initial investigation was hampered because the aircraft's black boxes were not recovered from the ocean floor until May 2011, nearly two years later.

I don't believe in that. Some Items (special plastic made) doesn't sank and more ever most of them will end up in coast lines (as bodies, do).
The following is an example of "debris"/garbage (US garbage by the away) that ended up in Portuguese North shore, about January 2014.
