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
In 2018, Edgar Hansen pled guilty of fourth degree sexually assaulting a teenager girl (15 years old) known it as Jane Doe due to federal law that protect under age victims. He faces no jail time. He got a suspended sentence of 364 days in a fine of $1653. He also must undergo a sexual-deviancy evaluation and treatment and give a DNA sample to authorities. As of today neither Discovery nor deadliest catch actors or producers have made any comments regarding the situation. Edgar has since been removed from the show. Though they did not address his situation in the show. See more »
This series is an honor to all those hard working men and women everywhere around the world, in or out of the sea, that have to push themselves to the limit to make it every single day.
Crab-fishing works as a fine "wagon" to carry all the agony, effort, mental and physical exhaustion some (the most) of the people around the world face to make their living.
The two-three weeks of fishing period at a time sums in a decent way the farmers' (for example) whole season before and during the harvest. And that is why its an interesting and enjoyable as tragic too, show to watch. Its compact, always about something new (besides the fact that is about crab fishing!), keeping a good pace, and keeps the viewer on the edge since everything changes as the parameters of the fishing do.
I am sure, those captains, are making many hard working men/women proud, since they are letting the rest of the world see what it takes for some people to bring bread (and crab!) on the table.
Very inspiring indeed! Thank you Captains....and in case you are reading this, "Good Luck" !!!!
