This video is from 2004, from a TED conference where an ichthyologist (a person who studies fish) named Richard Pyle is showing the audience all of the groundbreaking discoveries he and his team are making in finding and documenting new fish life. Most recreational divers only go about 130ft and people that do want to dive lower than that usually operate subs that tend to hit the 500ft and lower depths. As Richard points out that leaves a huge gap in the ocean to search for new fish life.
This video was really interesting, albeit for a newcomer it’s going to have a lot of information. It does however contain a lot of basic information about Scuba diving technology and how it has advanced over the years. Check it out:
