You really need to find clips of the exact same thing * you want to do and see what camera they have used for it.

Because of your subject , how close the camera can focus is less important than from what distance it can do that as well as the angle of view the camera can film at (if doing video) on your 4K resolution.

For example the FZ1000 crops the wide view from 25mm to 37mm, the FZ 300 crops from 25mm to 27mm however if not needing the extra angle , the FZ1000 is better in low light.

* as an example , people often reccomend cameras that do have a long zoom for bird photography overlooking that they may have a very slow (for that use) AF rendering them almost useless for birds in flight.

I don't know about shooting fish....
