Carl reunites with his friend and former student, ichthyologist Dr. David Reed. David works at an aquarium in California , but more recently he has been a guest at Carl's institute in Brazil to study lungfish.
David persuades his boss, the financially minded Dr. Mark Williams, to fund a return expedition to the Amazon to look for the remainder of the skeleton.
Soon after Carl leaves camp, a piscine amphibious humanoid , a living member of the same species from which the fossil originated, becomes curious about the expedition's camp.
When its sudden appearance frightens the assistants, they panic and attack, and in response, the enraged Creature kills them both.
The group goes aboard the tramp steamer Rita , captained by crusty Lucas. Edwin Thompson. When they arrive at the camp, they discover Carl's assistants have been killed while he was away.
Lucas suggests it was likely done by a jaguar , but the others are unsure. A further excavation of the area where Carl found the fossil turns up nothing.
Mark is ready to give up the search, but David suggests that perhaps thousands of years ago the part of the embankment containing the rest of the skeleton fell into the water and was washed downriver, broken up by the current.
Carl says the tributary empties into a lagoon. Lucas calls it the "Black Lagoon", a paradise from which no one has ever returned.
The scientists decide to risk it, unaware that the amphibious "Gill-man" that killed Carl's assistants has been watching them. Taking notice of the beautiful Kay, the creature follows the Rita all the way downriver to the Black Lagoon.
Once the expedition arrives, David and Mark go diving to collect rock samples from the lagoon floor. After they return, Kay goes swimming and is stalked underwater by the Gill-man, who then gets briefly caught in one of the ship's drag lines.
Although it escapes, the Creature leaves a claw behind in the net, revealing its existence. Subsequent encounters with the Gill-man claim the lives of Lucas's crew members, before the Creature is captured and locked in a cage aboard the Rita.
It escapes during the night, attacking Edwin, who was guarding it. Kay smashes the Creature with a lantern, driving it off, but Edwin is severely injured.
Following this incident, David decides they should return to civilization. Mark, obsessed with capturing or killing the Creature, objects.
As the Rita tries to leave, they find the Gill-man has blocked the lagoon's entrance with fallen logs. While the others attempt to remove the logs, Mark is mauled to death while trying to capture the Creature single-handed under water.
The Gill-man then abducts Kay and takes her to its cavern lair. David, Lucas and Carl chase after the Creature and Kay is ultimately rescued. The Creature is riddled with bullets before retreating to the lagoon, where its body sinks into the watery depths.
Producer William Alland was attending a dinner party during the filming of Citizen Kane in which he played the reporter Thompson when Mexican cinematographer Gabriel Figueroa told him about the myth of a race of half-fish, half-human creatures in the Amazon River.
Alland wrote story notes titled "The Sea Monster" 10 years later, using Beauty and the Beast as inspiration. Fetch a goddamn ball and do some back flips?
Because if so, those bastards have another thing coming! And again, what do these so called scientists do when you start acting naturally?
They try and kill you for not being like them! What is it with these people? Nay, these humans are just plain sadistic. While you were unconscious they brought in goddamn Josef Mengele, who cut off all your protective scales, removed your gills, performed radical surgery to make you— FORCE you—to be as much like them as possible.
What were they thinking? So now you have no choice but to stay out of the water, the one place you were happy and could function with any kind of grace.
But they sure are proud of themselves for having excised everything that made you what you were. Maybe in those last few moments in the water again you might at least feel a momentary peace.
Living in a state of nature is great and fun and easy, and, well, natural. You can do what you want when you want and never have to answer to anyone.

The creature then abducts Kay and takes her to his cavern lair. David, Lucas, and Dr. William Alland envisioned the Gill-man as a "sad, beautiful monster" and the sculpture of it was much like that of an aquatic development of a human.
Alland said, "It would still frighten you, but because how human it was, not the other way around". Originally, the Gill-man's design was meant to incorporate a sleek, feminine eel -like figure, which did not have as many bumps and gills as the final version.
The designer of the approved Gill-man was former Disney illustrator Milicent Patrick , though her role was deliberately downplayed by makeup artist Bud Westmore , who for half a century would receive sole credit for the Gill-man's conception.
Part of the film was shot in Jacksonville, Florida on the south side of the river near the foot of the old Acosta Bridge.
The Gill-man is fully amphibious , capable of breathing both in and out of the water. It possesses large, webbed hands with sharp claws on the tip of each finger.
The Gill-man's scaly skin is extremely tough, which combined with a fast-acting healing factor, allows it to survive wounds which would be fatal to humans, such as gunshots and full immolation.
It also possesses superhuman strength, which is flamboyantly displayed in the second and third films. As shown in the third film, the Gill-man has a dormant set of lungs , should its gills be irreparably damaged.
As shown in the first film, it is vulnerable to rotenone. The Gill-man is slightly photophobic , due to its murky water habitat.
The last known surviving member of a race of amphibious humanoids which flourished during the Devonian age, the Gill-man as christened by Dr.
Thompson dwelled in a lagoon located in a largely unexplored area of the Amazon rainforest. The creature was apparently known to the natives, as the captain of the boat Rita mentioned local legends of a "man-fish".
After having found the fossilized remains of another Gill-man, a marine biology institute funds an expedition to the Amazon in order to find more remains.
