A documentary special about America's deadliest profession: crab fishing in the Bering Sea.
Follow the Alaska crab fishery through the spectacular runs of red king crab and the opelio, or snow crab. The crews of the Northwestern, the Sea Star and the Erla-Inn work with the Coast Guard during these annual events.
The king crab run is the Super Bowl of crab fishing while the opelio crab run is akin to the Iditarod race. Follow the boats and crews who work these awesome natural events.
