Fabien Cousteau

Fabien is the first grandson of Jacques-Yves Cousteau, and spent his early years aboard his grandfather’s ships, Calypso and Alcyone; learning how to scuba dive as early as his fourth birthday. He is well known for his study of sharks from 2000-2002 as an Explorer-at-Large for National Geographic, Cousteau collaborated on a TV special aimed at changing public perceptions about sharks called, “Attack of the Mystery Shark”. In 2003-2006, he produced the documentary “Mind of a Demon” that aired on CBS. From 2006-2010, Fabien was part of the multi-hour PBS series “Ocean Adventures” with his father and sister, inspired by his grandfather’s famous 1978 PBS series “The Cousteau Odyssey”. In 2014, Fabien and his team embarked on Mission 31, the longest science expedition to take place at Aquarius, the world’s only underwater marine laboratory. Recently Fabien embarked on a journey to the bottom of the Belize Blue Hole with the Aquatica Submarine team, where they submerged into the mysterious sink hole to map its entirety, aired live on Discovery. Currently Fabien spends his time on various ocean exploration projects and is dedicated to fulfilling his dream of making a positive change on the world through his non-profit 501(c)(3), The Fabien Cousteau Ocean Learning Center.º
