The Deadliest Catch is a television reality show that takes place in the Bering Sea of Alaska as camera crews follow around 6 crab fishing boats while the crews risk their lives doing one of the most dangerous jobs in America. The series is very intense as these waters can be extremely rough and dangerous for the fishing crews. Crab fisherman are often seriously injured or killed while attempting to bring in hundreds of pounds of crab and earn a decent living. It’s this kind of excitement that has made the show very popular.
