In some South American country fishermen and pearl divers are frightened by the appearance of a mysterious underwater humanoid whom they call "Sea Devil". Soon it turns out that "Sea Devil" is a young man called Ichthyander ("fish-man"). As a result of experiment by Prof. Salvator, Ichthyander can breath both on land and under water. Once Ichthyander saves a drowning young woman Gutiérre and falls in love to her. But cruel Pedro Zurita, the owner of pearl-fishing company, wants to marry Gutiérre and to enslave Ichthyander...
