Dr Frauke Bagusche, Author of ‘The Blue Wonder’ – Why the Sea Glows, Fish Sing, and Other Astonishing Insights from the Ocean

 Astonishing events occur beneath the sea: a mysterious glow beckons at night, the smallest organisms play the largest role, and fish, who seem so taciturn, converse with each other—loudly. 

 But we only know a fraction of the sea, despite its size and intrigue—even the moon’s surface has been studied more than the ocean’s depths.

In The Blue Wonder, marine biologist and diver Frauke Bagusche brings readers along with her into the ocean and offers solutions for the future.
