Standing on top of a stack of crab pots, framed by the crane, crewman Troy Painter of the fishing vessel "Kiska Sea" looks over the bow searching for buoys while opilio crab fishing in the Bering Sea.  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.
