My current BF worked on a crab boat for a year, he was making £4000 a week,(so he told me) pity he wasn't working there now lol.I worked on a Shrimp/Prawn boat for 7 years. We would be out at Sea for 9 months of the year. Do one season of Tiger prawns for 4 months and do Banana Prawns for 5 months of the year.
At the age of 17 I was making between $80,000-$120,00 per year. This was 14 years ago though.
I have to say was the best job I have ever had.
Those prices don't surprise me at all. I also have a friend who still works on a Tuna boat they go out and catch 3-4 Tuna a day and make over $15,000 just for those 3-4 fish.That sounds a bit high.
