Although Jaws premiered over three decades ago, public misconceptions about sharks remain, resulting in the steady rise of industrial fishing and the threat of species extinction. With the goal of dispelling popular misconceptions about sharks and gaining a better scientific understanding of their behavior, Fabien created Troy—a shark-shaped submersible designed to mimic the fish’s behavior. Armed with video cameras and full diving gear, Fabien and his team swam alongside great whites, capturing over 170 hours of footage from inside of Troy’s belly over the course of two years. In 2006, CBS aired Mind of a Demon With Fabien Cousteau, a primetime special that featured highlights from the Troy experience.
