Well it used to be a rocket part, now it's a veritable floating civilization. Those mussels(or... whatever they are, possibly space worms) are probably ready to develop their own space program by now.

Mussels into spaaace !
... that ackward moment when you realize that Jeff Bezos personal fortune is far above NASA annual budget... 115 billion to 18 billion...

Big pieces like this staying afloat for months or years can be a hazard to navigation. With more rocket parts being made of composites and with increased launch rates of this material, this might become a real problem.

Well with any luck there should be no more additions to this debris pool beyond the PLF (Hooray Re-usability!)

You forgot payload fairing reuse.  :) Elon Musk has said they are working on it.

I would wager more large detritus washes out to sea from the Banana River during a storm than would be shed by all the Falcons if SpaceX was launching a full schedule. While clearly a hazard, it's a drop in the bucket compared to everything else.
If you're happy and you know it,
It's your med's!
