Marine macro invertebrate

Asked June 7, 2016, 11:50 PM EDT

We were in Coos Bay Oregon crabbing and this came up with one of our crab traps. Then seem to be eating some kind of sea weed. Nobody know what this is. Hoping to find the answer. I have a video of it but it won't let me send so here is a screenshot
