An underwater tour of the Gulf of Mexico by submarine and scuba, highlighting the vast diversity of marine life throughout the Gulf, from the surface to depths of nearly 2,000 feet. The tour begins in the northern Gulf, tracks south along the west Florida shelf, to northwestern Cuba and finally west to Veracruz, Mexico. This video was produced for the opening ceremony of the first "State of the Gulf of Mexico Summit" held in 2006 in Corpus Christi, Texas. This video was also shown at the May 19, 2010 U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, "Deepwater Horizon: Oil Spill Prevention and Response Measures, and Natural Resource Impacts" as part of the testimony of Dr. Sylvia A. Earle. See: http://transportation.house.gov/heari... For more on the Gulf of Mexico, please visit: http://1planet1ocean.org and http://oceandoctor.org
