Join monster fish adventurer Cyril Chauquet in Chasing Monsters as he takes viewers on a mission to seek out colossal and dangerous underwater creatures in the most remote corners of the planet.
From the shark-infested waters of Florida to the rugged Brazillian Amazon, Cyril tests the ferociousness of the alligator, fights huge catfish with his bare hands and battles with giant Mexican sailfish. This series explores the fascinating stories behind the elusive monster fish living in the hidden depths of the planet’s oceans, lakes and rivers, and the adrenaline packed journeys to catch them!
Chasing Monsters kicks off with ‘Monster Shark Infection’, which sees Cyril being recruited by researchers to catch the ocean’s most feared predators and swab their teeth to help develop antibiotics that save shark bite victims. The brave host must brave raging sharks to fulfil his mission.
In ‘Tug Of War With Giants’, Cyril goes on a mission to catch the goliath grouper, which is considered as one of the world’s largest marine fish. Watch how this avid fisherman tackles these giants, which grow to over 800lbs using a primitive and dangerous technique.
Chasing Monsters premieres 10 March, Thursdays at 10pm on HISTORY (Astro Ch 555 & HD 575).
