Dramatic tales of shellfish, strategy, and skill at sea
Giant Lobster Hunters follows the real-life dramas of six lobster boat captains over the last ten weeks of the winter rock lobster hunting season, as they risk it all in search of the world’s most prized seafood delicacy. For the lobstermen, it’s their last chance to put money in the bank until the fishing grounds re-open in spring.
The Southern Ocean is Australia’s deadliest stretch of ocean. Against a backdrop of wild weather and treacherous seas, crews work night and day to haul in hundreds of kilograms of lobsters across slippery decks. As well as the natural adversaries they face, there’s the volatile lobster price, which goes up and down most days. If a captain gets it right, he can make a fortune. Get it wrong, and he can lose it all. This is not only a story of risk, strategy, and skill at sea but also a drama about family economics.
