About The Show

The fishing industry has been hit by hard times, from lower numbers of fish to fewer jobs. Now, a group of fishermen hit by the recession are doing something about it. Following the lead of brash but experienced skipper Johnny Johnson Junior, they travel to international waters to capitalise on lucrative fisheries in this compelling series. Late in the North Atlantic bluefin season, Johnny and fellow skipper Dan Smith battle storms and a federal quota to bring home monster tuna and a paycheque. But as tensions flare with other crew members and engine failures cause havoc, life at sea is never easy in the fierce world of commercial fishing.
