Western Samoans hunting for palolo reef worms at night near Apia, Western Samoa. The rich taste of palolo is enjoyed raw or fried with butter, onions or eggs, or spread on toast. Palolo is the edible portion of a polychaete worm (Eunice viridis) that lives in shallow coral reefs throughout the south central Pacific.
