TOTT: Deadliest Catch
For this week's installment of Tucker's Off-Topic Tuesday, we'll talk crabs. I really enjoy Discovery's Deadliest Catch, and the newest season starts a week from today. For me, the profession holds the same sort of "romance" that cattle ranching does: it looks great from the outside, but it must be miserable from the inside. Also, it appears that Alaska is working toward a sustainable crab fishery, and crab populations are rebounding after a period of decline in past decades.
