Fishing is a relatively unknown profession with not many keen prospectors for it. An even more obscure branch of it is crabbing. And it is understandable as it happens to be one of the more dangerous jobs in the world. With a bigger urban job sector than ever, it is usually the locals in fishing towns that undertake the dubious job.

Crab Fishing: A Dangerously Good Living

The crew and the captains of a fishing boat have to tackle bad weather, rough seas and constant uncertainty to get their prized catch: crabs. But the job is equally profitable as it is dangerous. The crew has been known to make as much as $100,000 per annum! The salary of a captain is double the amount of his crew, making around $200,000.
