Jean-Michel Cousteau describes a colorful dive off the Pacific Northwest where cold, nutrient rich water helps support a rich ecosystem with an abundance of sealife. He describes encounters with giant Pacific octopus, wolf eels, sunflower sea stars, a rat fish, pink scallops. a cockle, a strawberry anemone, a matridium anemone, shiner surf perch, bull kelp, and a hermit crab. Jean-Michel says he loves diving in cold water environments because he loves the amount of colorful sea life that can be seen there.
The mission of Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Futures Society is to explore our global ocean, inspiring and educating people throughout the world to act responsibly for its protection, documenting the critical connection between humanity and nature, and celebrating the ocean’s vital importance to the survival of all life on our planet.
