I like it just to watch Mother Nature in action! Quite the seas there in the Bearing Sea.
Well unless it is another change to the rules; I'd say you are talking about the 2006 finale. The last two seasons these boats have been fishing on a quota system. The larger boats buy additional quotas from smaller operations and boost the amount of crab they are allowed to haul. Their seasons have become much longer than the 80 hour "seasons" that were in previous years because they have plenty of time to go out and find/catch the crab so long as they do not come in over or severely under their quota(s).If I remember correctly, they announced in last year's finale' that 2008 was the final year where crabboats kept their own catch.
