Biographical or historical data
US-born marine scientist, researcher and deep-sea shipwreck hunter David Mearns OAM has found and filmed some of the world's most famous and controversial shipwrecks; notoriously difficult wrecks that others predicted would never be found or their mysteries solved. Over his 25-year career he has led the research and discovery of 24 major shipwrecks achieving an overall success rate of 89%, and his company Blue Water Recoveries has been awarded three Guinness World Records, including one for the deepest shipwreck ever found at 5,762 metres. David is a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and the Explorers Club.
