Freshwater detective Jeremy Wade returns to Africa’s Okavango Delta to re-investigate the ferocious tigerfish – a pack-hunting carnivore previously blamed for mauling the victims of a capsized boat.
If these fish are as lethal as Jeremy concluded, then why aren’t there more reports of fatal, piranha-like attacks? In a bid to flush out the true nature of these sight-hunting  predators, Jeremy decides to put on his dive gear and in clear water offer himself as live bait. But with big crocs and giant catfish also stalking the depths, the dangers are soon multiplying.
