DESCRIPTION:
(from National Geographic Channel's press release, January 2016) And, in the new series Big Fish Texas, travel from the frigid waters of the North Atlantic to the unpredictable waters off Galveston, Texas where Katie's Seafood Market processes a staggering 25% of the fresh fish commercially caught in the Gulf of Mexico. Katie's is the epicenter of the fishing empire built by businessman, commercial fisherman and prior service Marine Buddy Guindon. Managing a kingdom with Katie's scope and scale is no easy task. Galveston is the second busiest port in the US, and Buddy grapples daily with an uptick in competition, a Washington bureaucracy, and the Gulf's tempestuous waters - all while being committed to creating a sustainable fishery. Unable to do it alone, Buddy relies on his sons - Nick, Ricky, Hans and Christopher - his wife Katie, his brother Kenny and his father Greg for help. On land, Nick is the steady hand charged with managing the Katie's chaos, generating business, and sending boats out into the erratic Gulf waters to fill the multi-thousand pound orders that roll in daily. On water, Hans and Kenny each captain boats and battle against storms, predatory creatures, and mental fatigue in pursuit of the fish that keep Katie's going. Spending days and weeks on the water, the slightest misstep could cost lives, but their epic hauls are the family's lifeblood. With business booming on land and sea, Ricky uses his tech skills to take Katie's global, while 14-year old Christopher is starting to find his sea legs. Katie is the glue holding them together and she attempts to balance work with family time. As business explodes, the season challenges the Guindon clan to keep their reputation as Galveston's best intact during a growth spurt. Between building and sustaining an empire, balancing family dynamics, and staying true to their humble roots, they've got their work cut out for them. But through the highs and lows, the Guindons prove again and again that they've earned their position at the top of the fish food chain.
