This exciting new series follows one of South Island's biggest Maori fishing families, the Fishers (yes, that's their family name!), as they hit the VERY high seas of the Foveaux Strait. Based in Bluff, Dad Vaughn has worked hard to build one of the most successful crayfish operations in the country. But he's handing over the wheelhouse to his youngest son, Jayce, who's joined on board the XS by his older brother Slade and their cousin Jamie. The 10-part series looks at an industry that the rest of the country might not have otherwise considered, and shows just how hard the Fisher family, both past and present, have worked to get crayfish from the ocean and onto our plates!
