That’s right, Alaskan Red King Crab fisherman can earn an annual salary in about one month. Their salary reflects the risks they take. This is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. Conditions are extreme… along the Bering Sea… in November.
But fishermen don’t just get on a boat one day and ship out to rough, wintry waters the next day. Instead, Alaskan fishermen develop detailed plans because being out to sea for weeks presents resupply issues. To succeed, fishermen follow a tested strategy supported by a detailed plan.
