Everybody's probably watched the shows in the past about Alaskan crab boats, but this is a new 10-part series starting Tuesday:


Why do men risk life and limb every season? Consider this: In 2004, Alaskan fishermen caught 15.4 million pounds of red king crab; at $4.70 per pound, the harvest was worth $65.8 million at the dock. But the potential to make such big money fast brings with it an all-too-often tragic consequence: crushed fingers, crippled hands, cracked ribs, broken feet and even death.

In fact, because many believe this race against the clock contributes to the high injury and mortality rate, the frenzied world of crab fishing is changing forever. Alaskan authorities are eliminating the traditional time element from crab fishing, instituting instead a simple seasonal quota system.

So join the Alaskan crab fishermen as they struggle through this last perilously abbreviated season, what veteran crab fishermen call "The Last Rodeo." Watch Deadliest Catch, premiering Tuesday, April 12, at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel.

I GOT THE CRABS

They are the reason that commercial fishing is considered the most dangerous job in the world.

the old greenhorn

That guy is a definite googan. If he is ready to collapse after 8 hours thats pretty sad. What did he expect. I see 70 year old guys that fish 1000 traps by themselves up in maine, at least the young kid is willing to work hard.
