Jacques-Yves Cousteau

Jacques-Yves Cousteau (11 June 1910 - 25 June 1997) was a French naval officer, explorer, ecologist, filmmaker and researcher who studied the sea and all forms of life in water.

He developed the aqualung, pioneered marine conservation and was a member of the Acadamie francaise.

Cousteau liked to call himself an "oceanographic technician".

His work permitted many people to explore the resources of the "blue continent".

His work also created a new kind of scientific communication, criticised at the time by some academics.
