For most, fishing is a relaxing pastime that brings you closer to nature––or at the very least, an excuse to break off from work and get loaded on a boat for a few hours. For the fishermen of Deadliest Catch, it’s a life and death struggle for survival.
The series, which has run since 2005, follows the crab fisherman on the high seas, whose fishing fleet braves dangerous waters for an expensive ocean game. The name says it all: a show about the men and women who do a job that comes with a high risk of injury and sometimes death. But boy, does it make for gripping reality television.
Here’s everything you need to know to stream Deadliest Catch.

Deadliest Catch Reviews
What the critics are saying
- “Weird thing in this season premiere is, the most riveting moments have absolutely nothing to do with the captains we know or their deckhands we meet. It’s the hour-ending cliffhanger of a Coast Guard chopper crew desperately trying to save a severely injured worker from a nearby container ship, battling roiling seas to hoist him up for a MedEvac…But after six seasons of testosterone docusoap reliability, this show gets a long leash.” –Diane Werts, Newsday
