I don't know which part of Saturn this picture shows but the set of six quite evenly spaced clumps in a rectangle look like they might be Rayleigh streaming vortices. Neighboring vortices rotate in opposite directions and exchange material between rotating cells. Sometimes driven by vibrations. But with such a fuzzy image I guess I'm being fanciful.
