Plot Synopsis

BATTLEFISH is a one-hour reality series that follows the tough men and women who pursue lucrative albacore tuna in the competitive waters off the Oregon coast, where they earn thousands of dollars a day -- or fall deeper into debt. The series opens with the albacore tuna fishing season kicking off with high hopes for some hefty hauls. Greenhorn Andre of the Judy S struggles. Everyone wonders how the solar eclipse will affect conditions. The Intrepid makes its first foray of the season. Andre's attitude becomes a problem. Malissa joins the Judy S as a deckhand to prove that she can "do the job better than a guy can." Oppor-Tuna-Ty's Aaron mourns the loss of his daughter. The Intrepid crew discovers a hole in the boat and the TNT deals with a broken freezer. On Friday, September 21, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the eight-episode first season of this series.
