Father’s Day With Deadliest Catch

Mandy and Sig Hansen.We had the opportunity to talk with Sig and Mandy Hansen, the veteran ship captain and star of Deadliest Catch and his newest crew member: his teenage ocean-loving daughter, Mandy. This past April, the Discovery Channel show began its tenth season – the first in which the father-daughter team is on the water together. Read on to learn about the decision to allow such a young girl to crab fish with her father and the all-male crew on the perilous Bering Sea, and the pride a father feels for his fearless daughter.
