A pot of opilio crab is emptied onboard the fishing vessel "Kiska Sea" as it fishes for opilio crab in the arctic ice pack of the Bering Sea in January and February of 1995.  The Bering Sea is known for having the worst storms in the world. Nights are long and cold in the arctic in the winter.  Crab fishing in the Bering Sea is considered to be one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.  This fishery is managed by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and is a sustainable fishery.  The Discovery Channel produced a TV series called "The Deadliest Catch" which popularized this fishery.
