The astonishing story of billfish: marlin, sailfish, spearfish and swordfish. They slice through the water's surface with explosive power - sail, spear and a half-ton of muscle flashing in the sun. Their journeys through the open ocean are epic, their life cycle, bizarre. They are the billfish - marlin, sailfish, spearfish and swordfish - largest and most highly prized of all gamefish. Their astonishing story has never been fully told. Nature "Superfish" airs Wednesday, June 20, 2012 at 8 p.m. on WXXI-TV (DT21.1/cable 11/cable 1011).
