Ishmael has risked everything to travel in stasis to work on another planet. Although he is not used to the fresh air and leagues of ocean, he is willing to work hard hunting the beasts of the oceans in order to send money back to his foster parents hopefully earning enough for them to leave Earth before the planet is completely dead. The beasts in the waters are everywhere, but the captain of the ship continually tells the crew to ignore them in order to chase a monster few have seen and lived to tell about it.
