Legends of the Deep Lecture Series

Communications Manager Tennessee Aquarium & IMAX Theater

The Tennessee Aquarium is proud to bring two of the world’s leading experts on sharks to Chattanooga. Rodney Fox and Stan Waterman will not only amaze you with their incredible shark stories, they also hope to inspire others to see these powerful animals as a natural resource that needs protection.

Worldwide sharks are in trouble. From over fishing to habitat destruction many shark species are listed as either threatened or endangered. At the Tennessee Aquarium’s Ocean Journey visitors learn about these predators daily during interactive dive shows.

But there is another arm of the Aquarium that many visitors may not be aware of, The Tennessee Aquarium Research Institute in Cohutta, Georgia. Habitat destruction and over fishing have also taken a toll on area lakes and streams and their living residents. “While the Tennessee Aquarium’s research is primarily focused on freshwater animals such as Lake Sturgeon, we can’t overlook the importance of marine animals and their habitats,” said Dr. Anna George, director of the Tennessee Aquarium Research Institute. “Because of the connectivity of the aquatic world, our actions upstream affect not only the health of our local streams, but also the world’s oceans.”

An Evening with Stan Waterman - Saturday, March 10, 7 – 9 p.m.

Stan Waterman is a true pioneer in the discovery of the sea, our last frontier, which he has explored for more than half a century. The world renowned underwater film maker and photographer, and winner of five Emmy's, has been at the forefront of scuba diving since its inception. He may be best known for collaborating on the classic shark movie Blue Water, White Death and directing underwater photography for The Deep. This is a rare opportunity to hear this legendary gentleman of diving who will share his adventures and encounters with wild animals, as well as some of his experiences as a movie & TV producer and film maker. He will introduce excerpts from three of his most popular films — Three Thousand Years Under the Sea, Blue Water, White Death and a film on modern day diving. We invite you to meet Stan during a book signing with copies of his book
Sea Salt: Memories and Essays for sale at the end of the evening.
