Fabien Cousteau

Expedition Member, Ocean Futures Society

Third-generation ocean explorer, Fabien shares his father’s and grandfather’s love of ocean adventure and protection. Only four years old when he first dived, he has been diving and working to educate others about the global ocean ever since. One of Fabien's oceanic passions is the understanding and protection of sharks. In June 2006, CBS aired his special, Mind of a Demon. With the help of a team of experts, Fabien created a 14-foot, 1,200 pound, shark submarine to enable him to move among sharks without influencing their behavior. Fabien plays a key role in Ocean Adventures, interviewing experts, assisting production and diving with the crew. A graduate of Boston University in environmental economics, Fabien lives in New York City.
