Fabien Cousteau, a third-generation oceanographer, shares his father's and grandfather's love of deep sea adventure. Only four years old when he first dove, he has been diving and working to educate others about our oceans ever since.

Fabien's latest oceanic passion is the understanding and protection of sharks. In June 2006, CBS aired Fabien's television special, Mind of a Demon. Fabien, with the help of a large crew, created a 14 foot, 1,200 pound, lifelike shark submarine for the program. The simulated shark enables Fabien to move inside the shark world, providing viewers with a rare view of the enigmatic creature.

Fabien plays a key role in his father's PBS series: Jean-Michel Cousteau: Ocean Adventures. He eagerly anticipates illuminating viewers to the mysteries of the ocean. He likely won't have difficulty attracting the attention: People Magazine named Fabien the "Sexiest Man of the Sea" in 2002. Fabien lives in New York City.
