We Come from the Sea
by Hans Hass
Hans Hass, Austrian marine-biologist and diving pioneer, was known mainly for being among the first scientists to popularise coral reefs, stingrays and sharks. He pioneered the making of documentaries filmed underwater and assisted in the development of an underwater camera and a type of rebreather. He wrote 25 books and received dozens of international awards.
