How Much Is The Deadliest Catch Star Worth?

It’s a natural instinct to wonder just what a crab fisherman earns, considering it’s one of the most dangerous jobs a person can perform, and while one might surmise that a captain brings home considerably more than a deckhand and certainly a greenhorn, financial figures can be a bit evasive. So, how much does a captain like Bill Wichrowski make for risking his life on the Bering Sea? 

On average, according to Wide Open Country, a captain on the Bering Sea can expect to make around $200,000 per season, barring there are no fines or other financial hazards against his boat. And remember, this is for six weeks of work, arduously difficult, but short and hopefully sweet! And while Wichrowski is dependable to his crew and one of the most skilled fisherman still on the job; he’s worth considerably more than a mere couple hundred thousand. Celebrity Net Worth lists Wichrowski’s total assets at a cool $3 million, nothing to sneeze at for his hard work and dedication to both crab fishing and “The Deadliest Catch.” 

And hopefully we’ll all agree that if there were a group of men who made it seem as if the money didn’t matter, it’s the men who captain the crab boats for “The Deadliest Catch.” Here’s to hoping 2021 treats Wichrowski and the other crab captains and their crews well. And here’s to the memory of Nick McGlashan, Wichrowski’s former deck boss, who passed away in December.
