Overview

In America’s oldest seaport, Gloucester, Mass., there’s a special breed of fishermen. They depend on Bluefim tuna for their livelihood in one of the most highly regulated fisheries in the world. But many experts think Bluefin tuna populations are at critical levels. So as the world debates how to save this species, these fishermen depend on them to make their living… one Bluefin at a time.

Episodes

    • 1. The Bite is On
    • Bill and the Bounty Hunter are already struggling to stay out of the red and their luck only gets worse when a “dragger” severs their anchor while at sea. Sensing weakness in his limping competitor, Dave of Tuna.com flaunts his catches and fills Bill’s ear with fictitious advice that sends the Bounty Hunter farther from the fish and deeper into the red.

    • 2. Payback’s a Fish
    • Marciano of Hard Merchandise family has missed him and gathers to show him their love and support. Marciano repays his family’s devotion when he comes home the next day with a $10,000 fish. On the other side of the harbor, Bill and Ralph team up to convince Dave and Tuna.com that the fish are where they aren’t as payback for the wild goose chase he sent Bill on last week. It’s the beginning of a pact between old friends who want to teach the hotshots on Tuna.com a lesson about the laws of the sea.

    • 3. Weekend Warriors
    • Desperate for a catch, Bill of Bounty Hunter starts doing some sleuthing around Gloucester, trying to crack Dave’s code in search of the secret that will bring him the fish — and the money too. It’s rough seas for Bill as the debts pile up and the fish remain scarce.

    • 4. Size Matters
    • The story of Kevin’s catch, by far the biggest of the season, is the talk of the town, and no one takes it harder than Dave on Tuna.com, a born competitor. Dave puts his boat on overdrive to catch up, while Marciano is forced to sit on the sidelines with a charter tour so that he can pay off the mountain of debt he’s accumulating to keep Hard Merchandise at sea when the fish aren’t coming in. If the rest of the fleet can’t replicate Kevin’s success, there are going to be problems soon, because there’s no help coming in this tough economy.

    • 5. Greed, Ego & Jealousy
    • After a series of near misses on fish that are below the legal size limit, Captain Ralph of the Odysea is desperate for a keeper, and his first mate Pirate is desperate for a long-delayed paycheck. When he finally finds himself on top of some fish, Ralph gets a distress call from a boat with engine trouble, forcing Ralph to make a tough decision — help out a friend in need or stay and make a much-needed paycheck?

    • 6. Man v. Storm
    • An intense storm slams into the shores of Massachusetts, and meteorologists are calling for winds up to 20 to 30 knots and 4- to 6-foot-high waves. Most wouldn’t dream of steaming out into conditions like these, but a few are brave enough to dare risk their lives — the fishermen of Gloucester. Marciano, captain of Hard Merchandise, risks the elements to hook a giant bluefin and finds himself with boat trouble in the midst of the storm.

    • 7. Mutiny at Sea
    • To his dismay, Captain Bill of the Bounty Hunter is working shorthanded as his wife, Donna, has to return to a job on land as a result of an unsuccessful year.

    • 8. Grudge Match
    • Paul, formerly of Tuna.com, joins the crew, and Captain Bill hopes he will help turn the boat's luck around.

    • 9. Pirate Problems
    • The more Ralph yells, the more Pirate tunes him out, leading to more mistakes from Pirate. Something has to give: either Pirate shapes up, or Ralph may ship him out. After defecting from Tuna.com to the Bounty Hunter, first mate Paul must prove his worth to his new captain or face the prospect of being a mate without a ship. After combating financial setbacks all season long, the Hard Merchandise is finally in the black, and able to enjoy some of the spoils of their success.

    • 10. Good to the Last Bite
    • And the end is near: the yearly quota of tuna set by the government has almost been filled. While Tuna.Coms Captain Dave must fish without Paul, who has jumped ship to the Bounty Hunter, Captain Ralph must land a fish on the Odysea without anyone. Since firing Pirate, Ralph is battling the rough seas all alone. With the clock ticking, the fishing is fast and furious. The Bounty Hunter hooks up a keeper and battles to keep it when the line snags under the boat. Captain Marciano of the Hard Merchandise sneaks off to his favorite spot and wrestles a huge fish in the middle of the night. Even the lone wolf, Ralph, hooks up and fights an epic solo battle against a giant bluefin. It seems everyone’s hooking up but the king of the fleet, Dave. But with the final hours of the season running out, Dave stumbles onto what may be the biggest, baddest fish of the year if he can land it.
