Could very well be lobster eggs.

lobster eggs? I would think that NOAA would know lobster eggs when they seen them and for all that has shown up it would have to be a lot of lobsters or a very big one like the size of a battleship. I hope that is all that it is. But I still think that NOAA would know what they were. Odd is an understatement

Alaskan waters are too cold for Lobster. I'm going to go with insect eggs. You have no idea how bad mosquitos can get in that part of the world. Saw one once, had Boeing written on the side.
(CNN) -- A mysterious orange substance that washed up on the shores of an Alaskan village last week was a mass of microscopic, invertebrate eggs, possibly those of a small crustacean, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration lab said Monday. More testing will determine the species and whether the eggs -- whose appearance on the shores of Kivalina in northwest Alaska startled residents Wednesday -- are toxic, said Julie Speegle, representative of the NOAA Alaska Fisheries Science Center's Auke Bay Laboratories. Residents of Kivalina, an Inupiat Eskimo village of about 430 people, found the substance in its lagoon -- giving the lagoon an orange sheen -- and clumps of the orange stuff on the beach. A resident who took pictures of the substance, Mida Swan, said last week that it had an oily feel, like baby oil.

Okay, hold on a minute.
Are you guys saying that every time I walk along the oceanside, I'm sucking microscopic crustacean eggs into my mouth, throat, and lungs ??
