BBC Oceans: Underwater fluorescence

Philippe Cousteau and the team dive in the Red Sea, one of the warmest seas in the world. Despite the warm temperatures, coral reefs flourish with their flourescent pigmentation putting on an amazing show of technicolour. Fantastic clip taken from the BBC Oceans series.

Philippe is one of the grandsons of Jacques Cousteau, and the cousin of Mission 31’s Fabien Cousteau. Watch more about fluorescence and more coral videos.
