    There are 85+ crew members on a fishing trawler? I had no idea, my knowledge of fishing is from watching A Perfect Storm

    That’s no trawler; that’s a factory ship.

    Same boat that accidentally rammed the Canadian warship HMCS Winnipeg about 5 or more years ago.

    edit: and local news says it now 86 positive.

    Where the fuck do they find 140 people willing to work on a factory trawler? That would be fucking miserable work. Trips are probably at least week and maybe substantially more. Cold, wet, dangerous and probably pays shit.

    A week? No, those poor souls are out for a lot longer than that. No way that beast is wasting fuel heading to port more than necessary. They offload their fish to tenders so they can fish nonstop.

    Yeah, more like months. The boat leaves Seattle, sails to Alaska, then drops fish off on the way back. I see that boat, or one of her sister ships here every year (Bellingham Cold Storage is the largest portside facility on the west coast).

    Entry-level jobs probably do pay shit, but there are definitely well paying career jobs onboard as well.

    Fish from those boats probably leave in the shape of a breaded square.

    Or those deep frozen precisely cut tuna steaks vacuum sealed you find in Whole Foods. If only Lexus driving soccer mom from Ct. knew how they were made as she bends over the cabinet.
