Five Things You Didn’t Know about Deadliest Catch: On Deck

Deadliest Catch, which is a series shown on the Discovery Channel, is a documentary produced by Original Productions. The show follows the portrayal of real life events which happen in the Bering Sea while aboard fishing vessels. The fishermen are doing their jobs during the different crab fishing seasons, such as bairdi, opilio, and, probably the most popular, Alaskan king.

The show derives its title from the innate and extremely high risk of injury, and possibly even death, that is strongly associated with this line of work. Even so, the show has enjoyed immense popularity. So much so, in fact, that they’ve had several spin-offs of the award-winning docudrama series.

The original Deadliest Catch premiered back in 2005 on April 12, airing on the Discovery Channel. Now, however, the show currently airs in over two hundred countries around the world. Only consisting of ten episodes, the season ended with its finale on June 14 of that same year. Nonetheless, the show was such a huge hit that it’s now in its fourteenth season in addition to having several spin-offs.
