Strike Force: Operation Sawfish

Strike Force: Operation Sawfish
Jamie and Richard travel to the remote northern tip of Australia to help capture and transport two live sawfish for a breeding programme in the US. Freshwater sawfish have never before been bred in captivity, so if they accomplish that, history could be made. But will they succeed? The muddy waters of the Leichardt River are not only home to the shy but dangerous sawfish, but also to crocodilesÂ…and they are always on the lookout for their next meal. The Strike Force team will have to push their resourcefulness to the limits if they want to stay out of harm's way
