Storyline

Before complaining about the market price of Alaska king crab, check out this gripping documentary series, revealing the mortal perils and intense discomfort that fishing crews face on the Bering Sea to catch the delicacy. Those perils include 40-foot waves, 700-pound crab pots that can easily crush a careless crewman, and freezing temperatures around the clock. Written by Jwelch5742

Goofs

The locations given for boats on the "radar" screen do not match what the narrator says. For example, one boat was said to be 225 miles Northwest of Dutch Harbor was marked further away than a boat said to be 290 miles Northwest of Dutch Harbor. Another time this occurred when it was said that one boat was a certain shorter distance away from a boat in a southerly direction appeared further away than another boat that was said to be further away, yet appeared closer on the map.
