The Deadliest Catch (Seattle Fun Fact #56)

Did you see that the F/V Wizard, one of the stars of the Discovery Channel show, is currently moored on Lake Union?! This 156-foot crab boat, as well as the F/V Northwestern and hundreds of other boats in the North Pacific Fishing Fleet call Fisherman’s Terminal in Seattle their homeport. But the fishing industry in the PNW isn’t just a road to fame for guys like Sig Hansen and Capt. Keith Colburn, it’s a $5 billion industry here in Seattle! With an injury rate at almost 100%, we give a hearty thank you to the hard work all our local fishermen (and women!) put in to ensure that we always have the freshest seafood in the country!
