Billfish are renowned for their formidable spears and sword-like bills, the species includes the spectacular marlin, swordfish, and sailfish. We embark on an extraordinary quest far out into the planet’s open oceans in search of an elusive 500kg, 5-meter long marlin, a highly-prized giant known as a “grander”. “Superfish” records billfish behaviour never captured on film before, including first-ever footage of tiny juvenile sailfish, the only footage of a free-swimming giant black marlin, and rarely seen behaviour of marlin and sealions feeding together.
