Fabien Cousteau spent his early years aboard his famous grandfather's ships, learning how to scuba dive on his 4th birthday. Today, the aquanaut, business strategist and documentary filmmaker continues to fulfill his family's legacy of protecting and preserving the planet's extensive and endangered marine inhabitants and habitats. He uses his experience and knowledge to promote environmental discipline as a viable basis for cutting-edge solutions that strike a balance between regional and global environmental problems, and the realities of market economies. Known for his study of sharks, he's developed initiatives and TV shows aimed at changing public conceptions, including Mind of a Demon, which he filmed in a lifelike shark submarine that he created, enabling him to immerse himself in the shark world. From 2006-2010, he was part of the PBS series, Ocean Adventures, with his father and sister, inspired by his grandfather's famous 1978 PBS series. In 2014, Cousteau and his team embarked on Mission 31, a groundbreaking expedition honoring the 50th anniversary of his grandfather’s underwater living experiment by going deeper, longer, and further, and broadcasting live; he is currently working on a film and book detailing Mission 31. A member of multiple cause-driven and charitable boards, Cousteau launched Plant A Fish in 2010, a nonprofit organization designed to empower communities to help restore local water ecosystems through the healthy “replanting” of key marine species. With extensive expertise, depth of knowledge and a name synonymous with ocean exploration, Cousteau engages and informs audiences with insights on environmental activism, corporate responsibility and inspiring stories of adventure and exploration.
