 Yep.  Algae not coral spawn.  Have seen it thick, but with the white jizz, that's next level.

Yes doesn't look like coral spawn.

 Time wrong also. Dodgy is likely on to it. I don't know the name, but it always turns up when sea surface conditions are right, warm water and not much wind. I haven't seen any up here this year, likely because it has been too windy. Quite normal to get it from December  onwards when weather is good. 

Coral spawn tends to to be very multicolored and turns up full moon in March or sometimes in April, depending on moon timing.I've got good video of it offshore and north from Kalbarri, looks quite different.
