Caption with image: Shortly after midnight on August 9, preparations began in the E.M.B.L. for a langusta hunt along Eniwetok Island's ocean reef. Some of the first-timers suspected a "snipe hunt" as the veterans got out lanterns, poles, bags and gloves. But it was all on the up-and-up and the jolly group formed a line and began combing the reef northward from the location of the E.M.B.L. This photograph shows the scene as equipment was being readied in the laboratory.
