An introduction to the life and career of the American ichthyologist and diver Eugenie Clark whose interest in fish began at the age of nine during weekly trips to the Aquarium in New York City.
“She watched the big shark swimming, turning, swimming, turning, never resting its long, graceful body. She watched it and lost track of time.”
