The two long ones could possibly be pennate diatoms with a raphe, however there are curved ones there as well that look similar so it's possible they could be some kind of closterium. There are no circular diatoms. At most I can see two, and I`ve spent the whole of my scietific career studying algae, first in biodiesel and now in flue gas remediation.

Diatoms are extremly common in seawater. If you want to see some, mix a small amount of tooth paste in water and put under a microscope. The mini shrimp in the pic are cool
