Catching Monsters, Discovery, new, series

How's this for a catch?

Discovery Channel (DStv 121) brings you the season premiere of the exhilarating Catching Monsters.

Catching Monsters follows the world's bravest fishermen who face a battle to the death on the hunt for the giant of the deep. Through savage seas and fierce gales, the intrepid crews set out tenaciously in pursuit of the giant bluefin tuna.


The series will take viewers inside the intense world of fishing for one of the world's most prized ocean predators.


Up in the unforgiving North Atlantic, in a small sacred stretch of ocean, treasure lurks in the deep. In just 1,000 square nautical miles, a group of hearty fishermen battle it out for the biggest and most valuable fish in the sea - the monster Atlantic Bluefin Tuna. These beasts of the ocean grow up to four metres long and can weigh up to 900kg. They are the biggest game fish on Earth.


Don’t miss Catching Monsters premiering on Discovery Channel (DStv 121) on Monday, 4 January at 22:00.
