"Superfish: Bluefin Tuna" will air on April 12th at 9pm on Nat Geo. The film was done by Rick Rosenthal. He previously did a film called "Superfish" all about billfish which was excellent, and was a principal cameraman on Blue Planet and many other great projects. I had the good fortune of working with Rick on this film last summer. I think it should be pretty good.
09:00 PM to 10:00 PM Superfish: Bluefin Tuna
It is a giant among fish. Few have filmed it in the wild. For marine biologist and wildlife cameraman Rick Rosenthal, documenting the bluefin became the ultimate challenge. Rosenthal sets off to uncover the secrets of the legendary bluefin tuna, while documenting its place in the grand scheme of the vast marine ecosystem. Capable of weighing in at 1,500 pounds, spanning 10 feet and swimming up to 50 miles per hour in a range from one end of the North Atlantic to the other.
Here's a trailer for the film:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CGVDK7aTaZw
I have no doubt that the footage in this show will be excellent, but I am very worried about the rest of the show. Barb Block and her crew have been working as hard as anyone to hurt our fishery in the management arena in recent years and they are supposedly very involved with this. Hopefully I am wrong but I would not be the least bit surprised to see this movie having quite the agenda.
Follow that dart!
on tonight! hope it's a fair show..
Terrible narration , good video
I learned something........damn whale sharks
Is there anywhere to watch that online?
Is this the same Nat Geo "In Pursuit Of The Giant Bluefin" show I taped earlier this week?
