Wade told the journalists he felt a sense of nostalgia sitting in front of our large barramundi and rays - they reminded him of his recent trip to Australia for an episode of the show that highlighted the same animals!

The world's most fearless fisherman, Jeremy Wade is a biologist, teacher, writer and television host who has been traveling (mostly solo) to the world's most remote rivers for over 25 years. During that time, Wade has encountered some of the strangest and most terrifying fish out there and has risked his life more than once to document the stories of hundreds of fish and the cultures where they live. Wade holds a degree in zoology from Bristol University and a postgrad teaching certificate in biological sciences from the University of Kent.

Don't miss out on the next exciting lecture featuring our marine mammal staff!
