Internationally famous oceanographer Steve Zissou and his crew--Team Zissou--set sail on an expedition to hunt down the mysterious, elusive, possibly non-existent Jaguar Shark that killed Zissou's partner during the documentary filming of their latest adventure. A young airline co-pilot who may or may not be Zissou's son, a beautiful journalist assigned to write a profile of Zissou, and Zissou's estranged wife and co-producer, Eleanor, joins them on their voyage. They face overwhelming complications including pirates, kidnapping, and bankruptcy.

Did You Know?
- One fish, dubbed "The Hydronicus Inverticus", was left on the cutting-room floor because it was deemed too ridiculous. It is a fish that can turn itself inside-out.
- When the crew is examining the sunken aircraft, we see the black box which is labeled "Black Box". In reality, airline "black box" flight recorders are colored bright orange.
- Steve Zissou: We'll split into two groups. I'll take Ned, Ogata, and Wolodarsky.
- Klaus Daimler: Thanks. Thanks a lot for not picking me.
