Pots of Gold. The Profit and the Sorrow 

“If you were lucky, like I was you found your destiny. If you were unlucky you found your fate.” That’s how one veteran fisherman described the remarkable Alaska king crab fishery that made millionaires out of men who had no particular qualifications other than a willingness to work ’round the clock whenever they were on the crab, and to risk their lives in one of the most dangerous occupations on earth. See first-hand the efforts of the original pioneers who explored the Bering Sea...the boom era when fortunes were made and boats and shore plants paid off within a single season... and the crash that killed the golden crab. For all those who fish, or simply love adventure. Thirty-minutes. DVD-Video
