The Deadliest Catch


The Deadliest catch is a thrilling television show about crab fisherman. The name of the show was coined due to the fact that the crab fishing industry is one of the most dangerous jobs around, hence the name “Deadliest Catch.” I have the discovery channel through my satellite televisionprovider and I have recorded just about every airing to this date. Basically, there are camera men and stationary cameras that record the activities of the crew members on deck and the captain in the wheel house. The show follows about five or six big rigged, crab fishing boats that are loaded with crab traps. Crab traps are large, metal squares that are heavily stacked and organized on deck. The engineer on the boat is the deckhand that operates a heavy duty crane that moves these heavy traps aboard the ship.

The show is really great because it gives excellent insight into the lives of these crab fisherman and what they do. I mean, you have to admire the hard work and determination that goes into this type of work. Every boat has a quota of crab to meet in order to make a profit and statistics are kept on how much crab each has caught throughout the season along with how much money they are worth. The fact that so much is on the line during each trip adds even more to the shows appeal. The captains such as Sig Hansen really make the show enjoyable. However, I have to admit that the greatest amount of excitement comes from the anticipation of how much crab is in each pot as it is reeled up from the depths of the Bering Sea.
