Brian Greene is no stranger to the pages of Reef Builders, nor to the annals of deep diving history having discovered a wide range of very cool and rare deepwater fish. In recent years it’s become easier than ever to make videos both topside and underwater, and Greene has footage of some very unique experience with abyssal reef life.
Very recently Brian has started collecting his deep diving videos and adding a sprinkle of production for his brand new YouTube channel, The Deep Greene. In an effort to help reach the limited audience of fish nerds we’re taking this opportunity to highlight why you should be watching this man at work underwater.
The last few videos he’s uploaded are actually quite short and very watchable, and if you know what to look for there’s some really uncommon sighting in all of them. The Pearl & Hermes clip above is a riot, with Greene’s dive buddy really in awe of the overload of rare deepwater fish they’ve caught.
The DeepSee submersible video shows a fun mesophotic reef but being on the Pacific side of Colombia, we were thrilled to spot perhaps the first in-situ video of the scalyfin basslet, Liopropoma longilepis. Other videos are more of an obvious spotlight on new species discoveries such as a new species of Turbo snail from Wake Atoll and footage of the newly discovered Pseudojuloides from the same trip.
We know Greene has got to be sitting on some fascinating videos of his deep diving adventures and we’ll be eagerly watching his channel to see what surprise discoveries we enjoy vicariously through his mesophotic dives.
