Saltwater Heroes

Andrew Ettingshausen is as tough as they come. The rugby league legend has an affinity with the sea and has made it his mission to catch every big fish on the planet.

Now ET is going to discover what it takes to make it as a commercial fisherman in a country known for its tough land, rough sea and rugged people. He’ll discover the history of our nation’s maritime industry whilst experiencing first-hand why people are willing to risk their lives on a daily basis.

Plus he’ll reveal some of Australian-first high-tech aquaculture solutions that are poised to not only solve some of our oceans’ biggest problems, but save declining fish stocks around the world.  Premieres Wednesday 5 August at 9:30pm AEST/NZST.
