RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- University of Nevada, Reno researcher Zeb Hogan travels the globe finding, studying and protecting the world’s largest freshwater fish and chronicles his travels on the National Geographic Channel show Monster Fish, which begins its fourth season July 5.

Hogan’s show offers a mix of science, adventure, and exploration around the world, with challenges such as expeditions up the Amazon and the remote Rio Roosevelt, a rugged 400-mile-long river in western Brazil that may not have been traveled since Theodore Roosevelt attempted it in 1913.

The shows and their air dates for the new season are Giant Catfish, July 5; Salmonzilla, July 12; Green Goliath, July 19; 600-pound Goldfish, July 26; Jungle Jaws, Aug. 2 and River Shark! July 9. The shows air at 10 p.m. For more details about the show go to tinyurl.com/mlq7zhh.

Hogan, a research professor in the University’s Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences, has worked with nearly 100 scientists on this project, which spans six continents (North America, South America, Africa, Europe, Asia, and Australia).

Other sites include (among others) the Amazon River, the Mekong River, the Mississippi River, the Nile, the Lake Baikal watershed in Russia, the Murray-Darling River in Australia, the tributaries of the Danube and the Yangtze River in China.
