About The Show

Crab fishing remains one of the most dangerous jobs in the world, and only the bravest, toughest individuals can navigate the turbulent waters of the Bering Sea.

Deep in these frigid waters lurks the highly lucrative, and yet often elusive, king crab; and the crews of Alaskan fishermen at Dutch Harbour are ready to hit the open waves. Fishing empires are built up as young upstarts rise to oust the veterans once and for all.
