Monster Fish Sawfish

Zeb teams up with local scientist David Morgan and Jarlmadangah Rangers, a group of Indigenous Aboriginals, to catch and study the monstrous sawfish in the Fitzroy River in Northwest Australia. Zeb travels deep upstream into the desert, where freshwater pools hide huge predators like the saltwater crocodile and bull sharks. Zeb and the team follow the sawfish migration from the estuary upstream and back again until they return to the sea. He tags and releases many sawfish, from a month old baby to a 2.2 meter megafish on its way to the ocean, where it could someday grow to be a monster 7-metre fish.
