Good question, I don't know, news hadn't said. Vast area, polar seas to the tropics, says Britannica.com.

Good question, news report didn't say. Researching a bit to it is nocturnal and eats plankton. They anchor themselves to the sandy bottom, and their wavy arms like tentacles capture plankton.

Habe not seen this creature until now. Sounds like this sea pen wants to travel and has migrated from the Atlantic and Indian Ocean to the Pacific Ocean.
