remote and fascinating region
extraordinary marine life.
we choose this mysterious water as
Bellefontaine's next destination.
In preparation for our voyage
The members of team Zissou's gathered
at my Oceanographic observatory
here on Precious Spot Island.
This was to be our most ambitious adventure
to date and ultimately a tragic one.
Our team included Esteban du Plantier, chief diver,
our senior statesmen, my closest colleague for 27 years.
Klaus Daimler, 40, engineer,
calm, collected, German.
Vikram Ray, 28, cameraman
Bobby Ogata, 22, frogman.

editor, sound man.
Vladimir Wolodarsky, 33, physicist,
25, script girl.
Pele dos Santos, 30, safety expert.
Eleanor Zissou, my wife, vice
president of the Zissou Society.
We also invited 7 marine science
students from the University North Alaska
to accompany us as unpaid interns
in exchange for school credit.
October 12th, Esteban and I explore
the blue reefs beyond the peninsula.
Florescence Snapper unexpectedly appeared
in shallows extremely rare in this depth.
Where is your gun?
Steve Steve, where is Esteban?
Check the scanning monitor, start
tracking before it goes too deep.
-Esteban was bitten?
-Is he dead?
-Esteban was eaten!
-He was swallowed whole?
Check the scanning monitor!
Steve, we think you got crazy eye.
Get him out of the f***ing water.
Esteban! Esteban! Esteban...!
-Esteban! Esteban! Esteban! Esteban...!
Was it a deliberate choice
never to show the Jaguar Shark?
No, I dropped the camera.

Why are they laughing?

yes, what is next for team Zissou?
Well, that was only part
one. It's a cliff hanger.
Now, I am going to hunt down that shark
or whatever it is and hopefully kill it.
I don't know how

-You don't what it is?
-No, I never seen anything like it before in my life.

Tonie Coach the new head of the film society.
