When I was a kid, Jacques Cousteau was my hero and the person who inspired me to become an underwater explorer. I have many other people who inspired me after him, but he is still my all-time hero.
I dream of diving in two places where I have not been yet. One is Antarctica, because of its crystal clear waters and amazing fauna, in addition to the ice cathedrals. The other is the Arctic, where I'd like to see the northernmost kelp forests.
A marine ecologist is a scientist who studies the many species that live underwater and how they interact with each other and with humans.
Fish banks are areas we set aside without fishing, reserves where we allow marine life to come back.
The ocean is like a checking account where everybody withdraws but nobody makes a deposit. This is what's happening because of overfishing.
