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!

The blue crayfish (scientific name barus alleni, sometimes called the electric blue crayfish, the saphire crayfish, or the Florida crayfish) is a species of freshwater crayfish endemic to Florida in the United States. Its natural range is the area east of St. Johns River and all of Florida from Levy County and Marion County southwards, as well as on some of the Florida Keys. It is included on the IUCN Red List as a species of Least Concern. The blue crayfish is frequently kept in freshwater aquaria. In the wild, this species varies from brown-tan to blue, but the aquarium strain has been selective bred to achieve a brilliant cobalt blue color. It should not be confused with the burrowing Cambarus monongalensis, also known as the blue crayfish, but native to Pennsylvania, Virginia and West Virginia.
