Having survived Borneo, Amazonia and the Congo, Redmond O'Hanlon now ventures into his own perfect storm in the wildest waters he could find. His rendezvous with destiny begins aboard a trawler converted for deep-sea fishing at a cost of $3 million - which is why its young skipper is setting out from Scotland's northern tip when the rest of the fleet is running for safe harbor. Equipped with a fancy Nikon, an excessive supply of socks and no seamanship whatsoever, O'Hanlon joins a crew of five who stock a bottomless hull with the catch, day after sleepless day, even as the hurricane threatens to wash them overboard. While he helps inventory the creatures of the deepest North Atlantic - from jellycats to the wormlike hagfish, unchanged since its evolution more than 500 million years ago - his shipmates exchange manic monologues that range from their woeful longing for loyal women, to trade laws and complex fishing quotas.
