      • Narrator: Man, the ocean's greatest predator, has developed the ships and the science to catch every fish in the sea. Each ship is different, each fish a unique challenge. In the Bering Sea there is a fish that literally feeds the world, Alaskan Pollock and it takes a ship as big as a factory to land it. Alaska Ocean, its half mile long nets pull in hauls 100 tons at a time, below deck the ship's state of the art factory processes 750 fish per minute, 24/7. The season is short, the clock is ticking, the Captain and his crew must keep this vast array of high tech in motion to harvest their quota, 22,000 tons. Will they make their catch or be bested by the most treacherous seas on the planet. Come aboard Alaska Ocean as it hunts he Bering Sea for the fish that everybody eats but nobody knows.
