Fabien has worked with National Geographic, Discovery, PBS, and CBS to produce ocean exploration documentaries from 1998-2006. Fabien partnered with his father, Jean-Michel Cousteau, and sister, Celine, for an ongoing multi-year multi-hour series for PBS called Ocean Adventures.
In 2014, Fabien made history by breaking the record for longest time ever spent underwater by a film crew. Mission 31 took Fabien and his team of "aquanauts" to live in the Aquarius Reef Base, the world's only undersea research laboratory, 60 feet below the surface of Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary. They set out not only to break records, but also to conduct cutting-edge research on the dynamics of a coral reef ecosystem over an entire lunar cycle. Fabien and his crew were underwater for 31 days, surpassing his grandfather Jacques' record of 30 days.
Fabien is routinely seen on network television, including Oprah, Gayle King, and as a guest contributor to NBC's The Today Show. Fabien has also appeared on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, CNN, France 2, NPR, MSNBC, and many more.
Fabien has spoken at a variety of global and domestic environmental and water conferences as well as mainstream business conferences such as Bloomberg, BLUE, Google Zeigiest, Sundance, Tribeca Film Festival and TEDx.
