Even before you get the "keys" to the glass room in the Aquarium de Paris, the host has for you Fred Buyle, freediving world record holder, underwater photographer and shark lover, ready guided tour, in which you will learn everything and more about sharks: how they live, why they are misunderstood and why they are an indispensable part of the marine ecosystem.
