6. Alaskan Crab Fishing

Salary: $84,930

阿拉斯加捕蟹人

工资:84,930美元/年

Training: There is no formal crab fishing license. Hang around on the Alaskan docks during high crab season (fall and winter) and chances are that you could score a job as a greenhorn -- a lowly deckhard who performs the grunt work for half the salary of a regular crew member. Prove yourself, however, and an often extremely lucrative job as a crab fisherman could eventually be yours.

"Deadliest Catch" is perhaps America's major portal into the world of Alaskan crab fishing: The unshaven, nicotine-stained men out braving the stormy Pacific to bring us hunks of fresh crustacean. And as its title both threatens and promises, "Deadliest Catch" became the first reality TV show to document a star's death. The fatality rate among Alaskan crab fishers is about 80 times that of your average worker.

培训要求:不需要有正式的捕蟹执照。捕蟹的旺季(秋天和冬天),你在阿拉斯加州的码头上闲逛,就有机会获得一份作为新手的活儿——一个地位低下的甲板苦力,干些体力活,薪水是正规船员的一半。然而,如果你能够证明一下实力,最终你会得到这份非常赚钱的工作—— 成为一名捕蟹人。

记录片《致命捕捞》也许是了解阿拉斯加州捕蟹世界的主要入口:不刮胡子、满身带有尼古丁痕迹的男人们,勇敢地来到太平洋的暴风骤雨中,给我们带来丰厚而又新鲜的甲壳类海产品。即危险又充满了希望,正名记录片的题目一样,《致命捕捞》成为首部记录一位明星的死亡的真人秀节目。阿拉斯加捕蟹渔民的死亡率是普通工作者的80倍。
