As the grandson of famed oceanographer Jacques-Yves Cousteau, Fabien Cousteau has big flippers to fill. The Boston University grad is living in Key Largo for his latest project, Mission 31—in new digs 63 feet underwater. During the 50th anniversary of his grandfather’s 30-day experiment under the Red Sea, Cousteau will stay submerged for 31 days, from June 1 to July 2, conducting research from Aquarius, a roughly 300-square-foot station. It’s also hosting visiting divers, including Northeastern University diving officer Liz Bentley Magee. She tells us about her first day as an ocean dweller.
