The story: A murderous creature, half-man and half-fish, leads George Johnson and Joe Hayes to the Black Lagoon in the Amazon jungle. Johnson is owner and Joe is chief attendant at Ocean Harbor, a Florida establishment which exhibits all forms of marine life.
The two Americans succeed in capturing the creature alive after the monster has almost killed Joe. The creature is taken back to Ocean Harbor and is put on exhibition in a special tank.
Clete Ferguson, a young professor of animal psychology, and Helen Dobson, a graduate of icthology, view the monster. Helen assists Clete in experiments he conducts to ascertain the creature's mental capacity. A romance develops between the young couple.
The creature tugs ceaselessly at its chains, and one day, a link breaks, and it is free. Joe and another attendant are crushed and clawed to death. The monster disappears in the nearby river.
The creature eludes all pursuers even while he manages to remain constantly in the vacinity of Helen, who is unaware of her danger.
One evening when she is dancing with Clete in a Florida night club, the creature emerges from the water, invades the cafe, picks up Helen and makes off with her.
The creature is cornered on a nearby beach. Clete manages to get the monster to drop Helen on the sand and make for the water. The assembled hunters, who've been withholding their fire for fear of hitting Helen, then let loose with a veritable barrage, but the monster, though wounded, succeeds in reaching the water and diving down deep.
