His rough-cut hair and beard shine silver like sunlight off water. His eyes are dappled with hues of the reef. He wears a dive-suit sewn in shades of ocean blue. His name seems derived from the sea, too: Cousteau. When he splashes off the stern of a dive boat, Jean-Michel Cousteau folds at the waist. His arms draw to his side. His swim fins flex and bite into the water. He is fluid, streamlined, serene. A cascade of chrome bubbles rise from the scuba regulator in his mouth.

Re "The Navy is tone deaf on whales," Opinion, Jan. 6 Jean-Michel Cousteau and Michael Jasny's opinion piece misrepresents the Navy's environmental record. The Navy is working hard to meet both its responsibilities for environmental stewardship and national defense. The Navy began taking significant and common-sense measures for environmental protection long ago. It agreed with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to employ rigorous protective measures for marine mammals well before the exercises in the Pacific Ocean began and before the Natural Resources Defense Council sued the Navy.

On this blue-on-blue morning in the South Pacific, I am sitting on the beach with Jean-Michel Cousteau, the 58-year-old ocean explorer, filmmaker and son of the late Jacques. We are sipping strong Fijian coffee and watching my daughter and stepgrandson build sand castles in the shade of a coconut palm on a narrow strip of beach that fronts this resort that bears his name.

Forty feet beneath the foamy surf that batters the basalt cliffs of this wind-swept island, Jean-Michel Cousteau was encouraged by a symphony of life amid the barnacled rocks. Schools of iridescent blacksmiths darted about the milky blue water. Fat, pumpkin-orange garibaldis popped out of dark grottoes and long, muscular calico bass cruised slowly beneath the canopy of undulating kelp. Such scenes told the bearded Frenchman that the Channel Islands' underwater ecosystem is doing fine.

Declaring that a tanker accident is inevitable, ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau called Wednesday for the equivalent of an air traffic control system to guide oil tankers and other ships plying the waters off the California coast. Testifying before a State Lands Commission meeting at Santa Monica City Hall, Cousteau said that preventing an accident at sea is the only practical way of safeguarding the state's beaches and sensitive marine life from the ravages of a major oil spill.
