Fish in a bucket

Observed: 13th July 2007 By: jammy3

We saw this and several others swimming around a marina in France, when we asked the French though we couldn't translate it to anything that we had heard of before!
The head is on the left and it swam by rippling its wings(?) from the front to the back.

I am unable to discern any

I am unable to discern any fish at all here. If the large item is indeed organic, it appears to be a large piece of a seaweed, and there are other smaller algal fragments.

If you are sure that the large object is a fish, I need some help in recognising it as such. If the fish is something else, where is it?
