This riveting Discovery Channel television series explores one of the world's most dangerous jobs: fishing for crab off the Alaskan coast, an occupation that regularly claims both lives and limbs. Twelve episodes are included in the second season of this highly acclaimed show.
Description by Image Entertainment:
Howling winds fierce enough to knock people off their feet, tossing waves, frigid temperatures. Swinging 700-pound crab pots for hours. Guaranteed injuries. That's the life of an Alaskan crab fisherman. He can earn enough money in a few months for a family to live on for a year or more. But it's also one of the deadliest, most backbreaking jobs there is. For these men, many second- and third-generation fishermen, working to the brink of exhaustion is more than just a job - it's a matter of pride. Crews continue to forge into the frigid Bering Sea to compete against not only Mother Nature, but also against each other as they struggle in an increasingly regulated and cut-throat world to maintain a family tradition that has lasted for generations.
