Consider this possibility:

Somewhere in the melting ice caps there were spores for some kind of prehistoric algae that has long since disappeared from the oceans. Could be invasive species. Is it growing, and is it edible to any known marine life?

Kinda messed up. I hope it's aliens. Where do you think it originated? Did it just appear?
