Amber Glass Fishing float

Pearl & Hermes Atoll - large amber glass float

~ June 2013 - question submitted by Joey in California

My friend doing monk seal research on the Pearl & Hermes Atoll (part of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands chain) discovered a large amber glass float, with blue netting with the marking d6 or 9p.  

Unfortunately, he can't send me a photo from the island only text emails.  

We are trying to find the origin or history of it.

 If that's not enough information, I understand.
