Adventurous crew men aboard fishing boats that sail across the Bering Sea in search of the Alaskan King Crab and the Opilio Crab, two of the most deadliest catches of the sea. “Deadliest Catch” is a documentary show created by Thom Beers that first aired on the Discovery Channel in 2005. It is now broadcast in at least one-hundred countries and revolves around eight to ten crab fishing boats that experience the most dangerous crab fishing seasons.

The episodes focus on different stories or situations that various boats have to experience. During the episodes, the U.S. Coast Guard is present as a rescue team and accompanies the camera crew during filming. Alaskan crab fishing is a dangerous job due to the fact that the Bering Sea is a harsh environment to work in. Crewmen experience multiple injuries because of the weather during the seasons they fish in. These weather conditions include rogue waves, frigid gales, the formation of ice on the boats and more. The machinery that they work with is extremely heavy and dangerous when the boat is constantly moving.

The series of “Deadliest Catch” have narrators that give commentary and connect stories when the focus shifts from one boat to another during a show. While this show is made to portray the dangers and difficulty of the job that these crewmen have taken up, it is also a depiction of the teamwork that is involved. The relationships between the captains and the crew are depicted along with the competition that occurs among the boats that have crewmen hunting.

The Alaskan King Crab is extremely popular crab meat for creating gourmet dishes and appetizers. Many people love the delicate texture and the sweet flavor of this crab meat. The value of this crab as a food can be appreciated more once people are aware of the conditions that these crabs are caught in. Regardless, the demand is there and there are people willing to take on the job of hunting for these crabs for others to enjoy across the world. Season 5 of the Deadliest Catch begins on Tuesday, April 14th on the Discovery Channel.
