More Boats Than You See on TV
When we watch Deadliest Catch, we only see the boat’s crew members, the water, and the fish and crabs they haul aboard. What you won’t find is another fishing boat in the area. Is that really the case, or do they record every episode of Deadliest Catch in Discovery-owned waters?
It’s all actually just a trick of the camera. If you were actually on board with the crew, you’d see at least half a dozen other fishing boats in the area. So, while things can take a pretty hard left turn at any moment, there’s always another boat in the area to help. We just never see them on TV.
