Elliott’s personal problems have caught up with him again and Saga is stuck in the harbor. The Seabrooke is at sea without Junior, who is at the hospital in Walla Walla getting his back seen to. On the Northwestern, an engine problem leaves the ship in the dark and Jake must step up to fix the problem. Meanwhile, on the Cape Caution, the crew have got wind of Kelly’s increasingly desperate attempts to leave the boat, and paint prison stripes on his rain gear that he must wear for the rest of the trip.
Deadliest Catch is a reality television series produced by Original Productions for the Discovery Channel. It portrays the real life events aboard fishing vessels in the Bering Sea during the Alaskan king crab, snow crab and bairdi crab fishing seasons.
The Aleutian Islands port of Dutch Harbor, Alaska, is the base of operations for the fishing fleet. The show's title derives from the inherent high risk of injury or death associated with the work.
Deadliest Catch premiered on the Discovery Channel on April 12, 2005, and currently airs in over 200 countries. The first season consisted of ten episodes, with the finale airing on June 14, 2005. Subsequent seasons have aired on the same April to June or July schedule every year since the original 2005 season. The 12th season premiered on March 29, 2016.
