Cold Water Cowboys

2014-2017 Reality TV

Six captains and their crews risk life, limb and vessel as they head out into the uncertain seas off the coast of Newfoundland in search for crab, shrimp, turbot, herring and mackerel. For these men, this is more than just a job and a means to take home a pay check, these guys are fighting to keep an industry and an age long tradition alive. With mighty icebergs, towering waves and each other as the competition, the stakes couldn’t be any higher as the crews try to fill their hatch as fast as they can, staying any longer than they absolutely have to is tantamount to suicide in these waters.
