Plot Synopsis

The captains and crews of three of Dominick Ficarino's boats harvest shrimp in the Gulf of Mexico while battling unforgiving elements, equipment breakdowns, injuries, competing boats -- and even each other. Ficarino is owner of the most successful business in Bayou La Batre, Dominick's Seafood. Plus, his loyal crews are willing to risk it all to sustain their way of life and keep Bayou La Batre afloat by working 40 days at a stretch and sometimes 48 hours straight. His crew includes: Captain Redbone, 35 years in the business, who is the one Dominick depends on to haul in the most shrimp; Captain Bullfrog, the 32-year-old "shrimp whisperer," who is Dominick's youngest captain; and Captain Roundhead, who claims he was once the best in the biz but is looking for redemption after some hard seasons.
