Captain Phil Harris' Sons Honor His Memory By Signing on for More Deadliest Catch


The show must go on…. the Deadliest Catch will continue despite the death of Captain Phil Harris. 

The crew of the Cornelia Marie- including Phil’s sons Josh and Jake – have signed on for another season of the hit reality show on the Discovery channel.   The ship’s captain Phil Harris died unexpectedly from a stroke in February.

The decision comes as a final honor for their dad and will include more screen time for the brothers as they try to keep the business afloat without their dad at the helm. 

“I will try to get it back up and running at full strength, and be the full owner, and my guys can keep their jobs,” Josh tells People magazine. “I will achieve my goals. One way or another, it will happen. There is no failure in a fisherman.”
