"Break bread with a fish," says Dr. Sylvia A. Earle, "if you really want to get to know him." Though stopping short of actually dining with her subjects, she made an intensive study of algae-the staff 286 of life for many fish. Here the botanist, leader of the all-woman Mission 6, shows engineer Peggy Lucas a handful of the plants. They meet at one of the habitat's hemispheric windows, which give a wide-angle view of the ever changing seascape.
