Prepare yourself for one of the hardest jobs you may ever
have. This type of a work environment will challenge you on the physical level
as well as the mental level. Everyone on board the boat is working toward the
goal of filling the boat full of fish or crab. Nobody is working by the hour so
you need to try and look at it as "the harder you work, the more you'll
make in the long run". Usually, by the end of a contract whether that be
2, 3, or 4 months--the reward will be a large check waiting for you at home
when you return. Both boats have a good track record of producing a lot of high
Shifts on the boat are determined by the Master or 1st Mate
on board depending on the type of fishing or the level of fishing (slow or
fast) at the time. They usually run 16 hours on and 8 hours off. Every 8 hours
there is a meal prepared and time in between sometimes for snacking or breaks.
Since there are several different fisheries that the boats are involved in, the
pace varies quite a bit.
