She was seen during one of the earlier seasons of The Deadliest Catch on History Channel. I got a shot of her yesterday as she heads North with the crew for the 2013 Crab Season (Opens around Oct 15th at Dutch Harbor). Here are some fun facts I learned after spending much time with many of your favorite crabbers. They don't get paid to be on the TV show. They can't, as it is a Reality Documentary. Some incentives have been offered to add some fun like a "most crab prize". When crab crawl along the ocean floor and come upon a POT. If they can't figure out how to get at the bait...they continue on and will not turn the corner of a Box Shaped Crab Pot. You can only obtain Males, No females can be captured. These boats from Seattle are among a fleet of 700 that still provide over 50% of the Seafaood we consume in this country.
When the crab are processed they go to Japan first before shipments arrive here in the stores of Seattle and the U.S. It could be almost three months before we have the Fresh Crab here. email@example.com
