…About Getting a Job on a Bering Sea Fishing Vessel

Many stories have been told about people who, with no trouble whatsoever, landed a job as a crew member in Alaska’s fishing industry on a highliner fishing boat and made tons of money. There are published materials for sale which boast of lucrative jobs in canneries and on fishing boats. The reality is, that for every success, there are many failures. A prospective crew member’s chance for a profitable season will be enhanced by careful assessment of job openings and close attention to details regarding any job offer.

During harvest seasons, prospective crew members must walk the fishing docks to follow up each word of mouth lead to speak with the skipper personally. The travel and waiting for such an opportunity can be costly, both physically and monetarily. Crew members rarely leave good jobs, so only a small percentage of hopefuls find their berth in this manner.

ADVISORY: Some of the reasons crew members leave should carry a warning to job seekers to proceed with caution. Commercial fishing is rated as one of the most hazardous occupations in America. Reputable boat operators rarely have serious mishaps, nor do they lose good crew members through misunderstandings. It is a good idea to find out why the departed crew member left. A vessel with numerous crew vacancies during the harvest season warrants investigation before new crew accept a job on it.

Minimum wage laws do not apply to crew member jobs in the industry. However, certain federal and state laws concerning hiring of persons under the age of 18 do apply.

Wages are often based on a share or percentage of harvest earnings. Newcomer deckhand earnings range from 1.5% to 10% of the adjusted gross catch, depending on location and type of fishery and the skills the worker possesses. Some vessels offer a daily rate from $50 to $100 instead of a percentage of the catch. Recent market conditions have caused some share rates to decline.

CREW COSTS
A crew member can be expected to purchase specialized apparel such as:

wet weather gear $100 per set
rubber boots $40 to $70 per pair
gloves $2 to $12 per pair
wrist covers or sleeves $5 per set
sleeping bag $70 to $200
The fishing vessel owner/operator should provide other specialized gear required by the Coast Guard, such as a survival suit. Make sure the vessel has a good safety reputation.

Crew members supply their own commercial fishing licenses. In 2000, commercial fishing license fees are $60 for a resident and $125 for a non-resident. The Alaska Department of Fish and Game has a web site offering
crew license information and purchase:

  19. Matt says:

    Here a job site I stumbled upon for Alaskan Crab fishing:

    http://www.alaskafishingjobs.com/opps4all.htm

    It’s not my web site and I’ve never applied to them so I can’t vouch for it, or guarentee it’s the best way in, but it’s certainly a place to look if you actually want a job. (As with any job application don’t pay no money for registration or anything).

    Don’t blame me though if you change your mind mid-season!

    Good luck!

    Matt. (P.S. check out the link to my new web site I am developing – it works but I’m still making it better…)

    Les

  23. Colleen says:

    I just read two really good books by Spike Walker:
    “Working on the Edge” and “Coming Back Alive” I think it should be required reading for all future Greenhorns. They tell all about what it’s really like to work out in the Bering Sea and just how dangerous and unforgiving it can be. Like if the boat starts taking on water and you can’t find your survival suit. Yikes!! But a man’s got to do what a man’s got to do. So good luck and stay safe!

  24. patrick brock says:

    Hi my name is Patrick i’m from england and interested in becoming a crew member on the deadliest catch.I have some experience in fishing and coming from an island obviously have good sea legs.I’m 25,6ft2inches tall and in great physical and mental strength.I believe i have what it takes to deliver the goods aboard one of your vessels.If you have any vacancies or oppurtunities please get in touch i would be most grateful for the chance and keen to earn back trust shown in me.thankyou for your time,yours hpefully,Patrick Brock.

  25. opilia says:

    Patrick, You’ll have to do some research to find work, they wont come looking for you. Try using the fishing vessel links I have on the main page such as the F/V Northwestern, F/V Timebandit, etc…They each have a little bit of info on finding work in Alaska. Alot of people start out working on processors handling seafood first, then make their way to fishing. Good luck!

  52. Dutch Chick says:

    OK,

    For everyone looking for a job in Dutch. Get out here! I can almost gaurentee you that no one from any boats on the show, or any boats in Dutch reads this board. I wanted to work in Dutch when I saw the show too. I Sent letters, called people….guess what, BIG SURPRISE, I heard from no one. Then I bought a 1 way ticket on Penn Air, packed a 50 lb seabag, and showed up in Dutch. I had a job in 2 days. That’s how it works here in Alaska. You are just another resume, another phone number….untill you boots hit the docks. Show up guys! THAT is how you get the job. PS, it’s brown crab season already….better get here quick!

    Dutch Chick

  53. Sally says:

    Dutch Chick,

    Being a Southern California girl, I have absolutely no desire to go to Dutch other than to cheer for the guys as they leave port, and to wish them a prosperous, and safe return…which in fact…I would LOVE to do! As far as living there, I DON’T THINK SO! You’re advice is so sound. It would seem pretty obvious, if you want a job in Dutch, first show up in person, and then make it official!

  54. paul says:

    Well first off i have lived in northern Michigan my entire life so im used to the cold weather, I also have worked many labor intensive jobs at foundries and such, heavy labor is what we mainly did.

Ive always loved fishing and cannot imagine doing the work that they do.Ive always wanted to go aboard a fishing boat since I was younger but never had the chance.

  70. Wisdom says:

    Everyone who is posting on this board should read Dutch Chick’s post, no.52 on this column, she is spot on. I have worked in Alaska the past two summer’s on a 32ft gillnet boat fishing for salmon out of Naknek in the Bristol Bay area. We offload our catch to a number of boats who are are seen on the Deadliest Catch including the Cornelia Marie, Time Bandit, Rollo, Northwestern, Farwest Leader among a few others. Many life long Alaskan fisherman whose career is fishing find the TV show to be very ‘Hollywood’ and doesn’t do justice to the monotonous long grey hours spent on the Bering. I don’t want to dash anyone’s hopes but you’re not likely to get a job by posting on this site. I would recommend checking out Alaskajobfinder.com, it costs some $ to sign up but it is legitimate, I got my 1st job through this site, my other jobs I got through being up in Alaska and inquiring about job opportunities ‘dock stomping.’ My adivce to you potential job seekers is to do your research to find about when fishing seasons start, subscribe to alaskajobfinder.com, and if you have the means get a plane ticket to Seattle, WA or Kodiak, AK. These are two main sites where fisherman are hired from. You could go to Dutch Harbor but FYI plane tickets to there from Anchorage, AK are about $800, ONE WAY. Follow my advice and remember captains and employers are probably not reading your post’s on here, good luck and godspeed.

    My name is Mike and I just wanted to say That I watch the show all the time (Deadliest Catch)and I personally think it,s all hype.Im telling you Ive done tougher work than that just looking for a job!Don’t get me wrong I love the show,However I really HONESTLY think a good hard days work would kill most of those guys.Im 46 years old and could do it in my sleep.Them guys never seen hard work.Try geting inside the back of a concrete truck thats stoped working while full of concrete and the concrete has dried.Take your little 90 lb jackhammer inside (98 degrees outside) and go to work!Thats hard work! Crab fishing would be a total enjoyment to me no doubt.Dangerous- maybe.Hard work-No way.Absoulty nothing on that boat a 15 year old could not do with a very little instruction………Mike Sandlin,PO box 91 Laurinburg,N.C. 28353

    I worked on crewboats,utility boats and supply boats in the gulf of mexico.Ive been in 22ft seas evacuating people off an oilrig 110 miles out in a class 3 hurricane.Ive worked as deck foreman,deckhand,engineer and ive rode out plenty of rough weather.I earned my sealegs along time ago,Im not one of these new cocks looking for adventure and fame I can care less,I know the dangers involved with the job.The past 10 years Ive been driving bridge pile off of barges and I would like to add that this is rated the #1 most dangerous job and not crab fishing so chill out!Its up there and in my opinion their both very dangerous.Ive made big money and this is my business doing whatever it takes to get the job done and being safe about it in the process.Im not trying to portray an attitude here but I feel I should state the facts.I am willing to start off in an entry level position and with hard work I expect to promoted quickly so I can get a bigger cut.I am experienced in both cat and detroit engines,I can weld and know how to secure and throw lines.I can throw a polypropelene 3inch line from ship to shore and hit the bit at 50 ft in rough seas.Im looking for immediate employment and know if I was working with a good crew we could make alot of money.Im used to long hours with no sleep in all types of different weather conditions.Now lets make some money! 772-918-8802 Jason nelson Sebastian,fl

  103. mark potter says:

    hi; my name is ‘little mark’. i spent 16 years fishing and crabbing in the bearing; ya i have the scars, nightmares and the grief of lossing my friends up there, would i do it again, yes, it wasnt about the money it was about haulling gear and the fact that i got off on it. it is not for everybody, a person will find out what they are made of physically, mentaly and emotionally. oh, and if you spend too much time on those boats you will find onesself disasociated from living on land around so many people. if you want to find out who, and what you are then grow some and just do it, but remember, the only thing that comes close is live combat; choose wisely, it could cost you your life. HAUL GEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! p.s. land sucks!!!!!!!!!!

  104. I would very much like to expierience work offland and do my best at it. I read the stories of those that have worked in the industry and they all explained the risks and danger of this work and I would very much like to be like them and have my own story to tell.
    This is work I always wanted to do for as long as I could remember. It would be a privilage to be out there on the bearing sea to do my best at this work.

    Crab fishing looks like FUN, I know my knots and a very hard worker. Would love to contribute my knowledge and strength to the crew.

    I think we shoulkd do an episode on Halibut fishing in Alaska (Commercial) If you are interested, I was the fastest dresser (cleaning & gutting Halibut in Kodiak) I could set gear, haul gear, I was the Bad Ass roller man! I could send photos if you like. I wish we had video cameras back in the day.

I’ve been all over the world and came to realize whille sitting in afghanistan on tour that getting home to work for my father fishing and evenually buying the gear was what I need to do to make myself happy. I would love the chance to show myself and you that I can fish with the big boys and hold my own, please give me a chance even if I have to work for free until I show you I’m worth the money
