The fishing vessel "Reliance" fishes for opilio crab in the Bering Sea during a storm in February of 1994. The Bering Sea is known for having the worst storms in the world. In this photo a deckhand has just thrown the "hook" at the buoy attached by a line to the crab pot sitting on the ocean floor. He will then pull it aboard using hydrolics. Crab fishing in the Bering Sea is considered to be one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. This fishery is managed by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and is a sustainable fishery. The Discovery Channel produced a TV series called "The Deadliest Catch" which popularized this fishery.

You may have seen the program on TV with the fishers from Alaska. This dangerous job is not a joke. They have to be able to work up to 24 hours a day, scrub ice off the boat, heavy lifting, and be aware of gigantic waves that could wipe any man off the boat. If you ask a an old fisherman if he have been in any dangerous situations where he luckily stayed alive, he would probably say yes.
