Why Edgar Hansen Was Not Featured in the Season 15 Premiere of 'Deadliest Catch'


“Crab fishing remains one of the world’s most deadliest professions…" Deadliest Catch is back for another chilling season as captains and their crew battle the turbulent seas to fish for the coveted King Crabs. 

One fan favorite family since the show’s inception is Sig Hansen and his boat the Northwestern.  

Season 15 revealed that Sig is training his daughter, Mandy Hansen, to take over the family business one day. 

"Oh, she’s fine. She and her husband can take it and run. I don’t care. They are young, they got this,” Sig told Entertainment Weekly in response to his daughter honing in her skills to eventually become captain. "For me, I’m done. I got a foot out the door. My mentality is different from it was 20 years ago. You only get so many chances. I’m hoping it makes sense."
