Murmurs from the Deep: Scientific Adventures in the Caribbean | [Gilles Fonteneau]

Murmurs from the Deep: Scientific Adventures in the Caribbean

Gilles Fonteneau, a longtime colleague of the legendary Jacques Cousteau's Calypso team, fulfilled a lifelong dream when in 2001 he launched his own exploration, aboard the 45-foot catamaran Prince de Vendee, into the silent world of the sea. Little did he know when he set out that his efforts to better understand the dynamics of the tectonic plates of the region would have such worldwide significance, as shown by the tsunami disaster of southeast Asia in December 2004.

Audible Editor Reviews

Gilles Fonteneau's Murmurs from the Deep examines the underwater world, looking at the language of fish. Based on Fonteneau's own fieldwork, this audiobook is significant in its field. Robin Bloodworth's performance is particularly compelling. His deep voice handles distinct characters and accents seamlessly as well as any foreign words he comes across. Listening to Bloodworth is a real treat. His tone is both dramatic and intense. Together, these two have collaborated to present an audiobook that is as illuminating as it is captivating.

Publisher's Summary

A scientific expedition into unknown parts of the Caribbean to study the tectonic plates of the region answers the intriguing question: Is there a language of fish?

Gilles Fonteneau, a longtime colleague of the legendary Jacques Cousteau's Calypso team, fulfilled a lifelong dream when in 2001 he launched his own exploration, aboard the 45-foot catamaran Prince de Vendee, into the silent world of the sea. Little did he know when he set out that his efforts to better understand the dynamics of the tectonic plates of the region would have such worldwide significance, as shown by the tsunami disaster of southeast Asia in December 2004. His second goal, sponsored by NASA and the Bacardi Family Foundation, to make acoustic recordings of the region's fish, produced startling results, which will go a long way toward understanding and protecting threatened species.

As fascinating as it is scientifically revealing, Murmurs from the Deep sheds new light on the ever-mysterious underwater world.
