WHO:               Josh Harris steered clear of fishing on the Cornelia Marie with his father after a scary early childhood fishing experience. After going out on his own, Josh took a position as an engineer on another boat, where a serious shoulder injury put him back on land. A few years later, while cod fishing and working in a processing plant, his dad goaded him to get back in the saddle – “If you want to be a man, come on out and prove yourself. If your brother can do it, so can you.” It was then that he joined his brother, Jake, as a deckhand on the F/V Cornelia Marie.
