I just watched an thing about this on the news a little while ago, crazy stuff! No way I'd want to go in there, but seeing it in real life, I probably would.

It says so in the article...

Scientists explain that the foam is created by impurities in the ocean, such as salts, chemicals, dead plants, decomposed fish and excretions from seaweed.
