Captain Cousteau: Highlights and Lowlights

Manuel Martín Bueno

The university professor and underwater archaeologist Manuel Martín Bueno explains how the French naval officer Jacques-Yves Cousteau (1910-1997) became one of the most outstanding experts and spokesmen of the unknown world of the seas and oceans. Co-inventor (in conjunction with the engineer Émile Gagnan) of the diving regulator known as the “Aqua-lung” that transformed the world of diving and the star of numerous tv reports, special serialised supplements, books and films, he was also a great defender of the marine environment, although his career was not exempt from polemics with archaeologists and ecologists.
