Product Overview

Forty-foot waves, freezing temperatures, swinging 700-pound crab pots, a nearly 100-percent injury rate...but also the chance to earn enough money for a year for just a few days' work. Welcome to one of the world's deadliest jobs: the Alaskan crab fisherman.

Deep in the frigid waters of the Bering Sea lurks the highly lucrative, yet often elusive, king and snow crabs. Each year, approximately 250 boats converge on Dutch Harbor, Alaska, awaiting the start of the official harvesting seasons announced by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

Crew members regularly pull 20-hour shifts in freezing weather, exposed to the harsh elements on a slick deck, often pitching to and fro. The harried, exhausted men have one purpose: catch as much crab as possible before the authorities announce the end of the season.

Why do these men risk life and limb every season? Money. In the season prior, the king crab harvest alone was worth $65 million at the dock. But the potential to make such good money - fast - brings with it an all-too-tragic consequence...

This five disc collection includes all 10 episodes from The Complete First Season of Deadliest Catch!

Review Forget Survivor. This is the real thing, with each day potentially a fisherman's last. Why do they do it? Because a single king crab is worth $25-$35 on the market, and the goal for many boats is a 10,000-crab haul during a season that's based on a quota set by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game...Sometimes the season lasts just 80 hours, during which time crewmembers go without sleep and brave the elements for the chance to make enough money to last them till next year. But as one old-timer says, it's not just a job--it's a lifestyle, and this Discovery Channel documentary series puts you right in the middle of things...Odds are that people who watch this show are going to find themselves rooting for favorite boats, captains, and crews so much that every pot--no matter how many times you see it pulled--starts to feel like your own high-stakes game
