The Deadliest Catch

So, have you watched Discovery's The Deadliest Catch?

It's a terrific show that documents crab fishing in Alaska's Bering Sea with striking footage aboard boats like the one on the sketch. Fishermen work around the clock in freezing weather and rough seas to catch tons of king crab worth millions of dollars.

Some of the boats are based in Seattle and this one, the North American, was at Fishermen's Terminal last weekend.

A lo que ibamos, ¿habéis visto el programa del Discovery Channel The Deadliest Catch?

Se trata de un programa buenísimo que documenta la pesca del cangrejo en el mar de Bering en Alaska con imágenes impresionantes a bordo de barcos como el del dibujo. Los pescadores trabajan a contrareloj a temperaturas bajo cero y en medio de tempestades para capturar toneladas de cangrejo valoradas en millones de dólares.

Algunas de las embarcaciones tienen su puerto base en Seattle y el fin de semana pasado vimos una de ellas, la North American, en Fishermen's Terminal.
