Deckhand Danny Chiu


Hailing from Fort Wayne, Indiana, Danny Chiu started fishing at age 22 on a catcher/processor and did his first voyage manning the "gut table" for 3 months. After that trip he told himself that he would never do that again.

As luck would have it, he eventually accepted a job from the same boat working the deck. Since then he has spent at least 10 years on the Bering Sea fishing crab.

He says he's always had good fishing opportunities because of his good work ethic. At 36, he's the oldest fisherman on deck.

Recently out of rehab for "all of the above," he is trying to live sober now. He has his able-bodied seaman card, and would like to captain and eventually have his own boat.

Danny also happens to go way back with James Tommy.
