I think this is a large salp. There were lots of little ones (as can be seen around that really big one which was about a fist size. Would like an ID for the large one if possible :)

Description from Wikipedia

The Thaliacea comprise a class of marine animals within the subphylum Tunicata. Unlike their benthic relatives the ascidians, thaliaceans are free-floating (pelagic) for their entire lifespan. The group includes species with complex life cycles with both solitary and colonial forms.
