[video] Deadliest Catch - Greenhorns

"It's the deadliest job on earth: crab fishing off the Alaska coast on the icy Bering Sea, home to the most violent waters on earth. During the five-day "season," a handful of adventurers will battle Arctic weather, brutal waves, and a ticking clock for a chance at big money in this modern-day gold rush. Working around the clock, and often going days without sleep, this unique breed of men, part-adventurer and part-fisherman, will set out upon an unforgettable odyssey. Sadly, all of them may not return.

The world's last gold rush is coming to an end after this season. Starting in 2005 the Department of Fish and Game will give each boat a quota that they may catch at their leisure. This will be the last time King Crab will ever be fished in a frantic derby style.
