Regarding the brown foam - could it be residue from

i read the article and it apparently is a sign of a healthy ocean, dont remember how to spell it but little tiny plankton things, if you click the link and read the article you'll learn more, im glad i came across this because i live right off one of the rivers here and have been curious about the foam. although it is stinky when the tide brings it into part of our yard and it stays there, yuck. i dont know how to get it back in the river lol
