Synopsis

Fish biologist Zeb Hogan is on a global expedition to find some of the world’s largest fish. In his sixth season, Zeb is leaving no stone unturned as he searches for the ferociously fanged vampire fish, attempts to raise an elusive 600-pound short-tail stingray to the surface, catch a pigeon-eating catfish in the act and dive with a goliath grouper said to attack humans. Zeb’s incredible adventures will lead him through the U.S.A, western Europe and the far-flung jungles of South America. He’ll combine his own knowledge with that of fisherman, scientists and quirky locals to debunk the myths, prove fact from fiction and catch some of the world’s true Monster Fish.
