Offshore fishing, the most dangerous job in Britain, has a problem when it comes to getting new recruits. But 17 year old Ryan wants to take up the challenge. He sets out on his first trip on one of the most successful pair trawlers in Britain as they head into the rough Norwegian waters looking for Cod and Haddock. If he doesn’t work hard and impress the skipper, Kevin West, he’ll be looking for a new job when they come back to port. Elsewhere, skipper Jimmy Buchan on Amity has had to shift grounds and return to the Devil’s Hole, one of the most hazardous fishing areas in the North Sea. One unlucky trawl could at worse put his crew and boat in jeopardy, at best could mean the loss of his nets. And John Buchan, skipper of Ocean Venture returns to port with his deep water catch. He’s got to get top prices to pay for the boat and the crew, but the market is full and he’s facing a lot of competition.
