Laurent (Larry) Pilotte grew up snorkeling and exploring above and below the sea in New England in the USA.
He quickly realized he needed to make SCUBA diving the focus of his life. He has traveled around the world, found and identified underwater treasures, created educational videos and more.
He now operates a company to eradicate invasive freshwater plants that are taking over many bodies of water all across the United States. His program is gaining momentum and the attention of many municipalities as they discover how effective the removal process is and how fast the plants are taking over.
