Bah, I thought that the clam/oyster thing was it but extensive googling told me that certain clams do, in fact, have pearls but they aren't high in value.

You got it, plasmid. Clams don't have pearls, oysters do. Kestrelnight also had some good points with why the note wasn't wet, and a merman is not the same thing as a man. Who wrote the note, then? Obviously someone who has had little experience with the sea. Perhaps you are being watched...but maybe by a rival explorer searching for Atlantis, too. Your best bet is to trust the merman and see where he leads you.
"Are you coming?" the merman enquires.
"Yes," you reply. "But, uh, how will I be able to breathe underwater?"
He dives suddenly into the water and comes up with a handful of odd-looking weeds. "Here, eat these," he tells you. "They will coat your mouth with a mucus that will repel water and hold in oxygen, at least for a few hours."
You stuff the slimy weeds into your mouth. "Just let me hide my bag somewhere," you say with a mouth full of gunk. But are there some things in your bag you should keep? You can only hold three and keep your normal swimming speed.
The merman seems to have read your mind. "I know you are wondering about what to take," he says. "Here is a riddle. If you can solve it, I will give you a special waterproof bag to hold everything."
"Alright," you say.
He begins the riddle:
The only gem to have a parent,
Hidden in a prism, a cage
Within, there is the C in music
Covered in mouse bait
Add some fake blood from the grocery store
Have fun with this wacky answer!

1. Sorry about my poor knowledge of clams; I thought only oysters made pearls.
2. Ketchup is a closer guess than wine or corn syrup.
3. Yes, a pearl is right, but what kind?
4. "Things that get better over time" is not right.
5. Since the merman knows English, he has obviously spoken to other "land-dwellers". Perhaps the subject of cheese and mice came up.
6. As to the poison question, you are not dead now, right? And apparently you are thinking clearly enough to be making good headway on this riddle. I guess you'll just have to trust this merman.
7. I hope this answers everything!

Super close, but again, I am talking about something with "pearl" in the name...it has a parent...what could it be?

Wait, that's a burger, not a pizza. Although, it still sorta makes sense, in a way...maybe.
