Chasing Giants: In Search of the World’s Largest Freshwater Fish by Zeb Hogan and Stefan Lovgren
University of Nevada Press, April 2023
Seeking to answer the question Which of the giant freshwater species is the largest? motivates Zeb Hogan to understand the various species he studies. The megafish’s numbers are dwindling, and the majority of them face extinction. He teams up with award-winning journalist Stefan Lovgren to tell, for the first time, the remarkable and troubling story of the world’s largest freshwater fish. It is a story that stretches across the globe, chronicling a race against the clock to find and protect these ancient leviathans before they disappear forever. Chasing Giants combines science, adventure, and wonder to provide insights into the key role the massive fish of our lakes and rivers play in our past, present, and future.
