"Bering Sea Gold" Season 4 on Discovery Channel is a reality docu-series from the producers of the Emmy-winning "Deadliest Catch."

Nome, Alaska. Every summer, as the glacial ice melts around this frozen and isolated port, a handful of fortune seekers hunt for gold in the most unlikely of places: the bottom of the Bering Sea. The series profiles the salty and eccentric characters who spend hours on the rocky, frigid ocean floor, hunting gold from custom built, sometimes barely seaworthy rigs. From the desperate to the diabolical, the Nome gold fleet takes on all comers, and the brutal Bering Sea does the rest. From a family who owns and operates an 80 foot barge, to an Alaskan social worker who sinks his life savings into a lifelong dream of being a gold miner ... and from the only female dredger in Nome, to a captain who needs to pay his debts to stay out jail, these rugged treasure hunters put it all on the line to scour the sea floor for sparkling, precious metal. With gold's price at an all-time high, some will go home rich ... and some will just go home.

Season 3

This past winter season proved to be a bust for nearly every crew — making the stakes even higher and pitting former best friends against each other with tempers flaring. It is also a season of change with Emily Riedel becoming Nome's first and only female dredge owner commanding The Eroica (formerly The Edge, run by her ex- love interest Zeke Tenhoff). Will Emily be able to handle the pressure and get on the gold? Or will her crew bail? Meanwhile, Steve and Shawn Pomerenke set out with Nome's biggest dredge — The Christine Rose — to continue their dominance over the fleet but soon realize there is new competition in town, a mega dredge named the Gold Grabber run by rookie owner Hank Schimschat.

Season 4

To the Nome dredging fleet, gold equals freedom. This year, the fortune seekers head out in search of the American dream — each determined to top last year's record-setting gold haul. But can they put their personal battles aside, withstand the arctic environment and concentrate on finding treasure?

After establishing herself as a successful captain, 26-year-old Emily Riedel is back at it again with a brand new, expensive state-of-the-art ice dredge. Facing major debt, Emily is feeling the pressure to find gold fast and prove that her success as Nome's first and only female dredge owner was not a fluke. Meanwhile, Emily's eccentric father, Steve Riedel, is sidelined and planning his ultimate comeback after bottoming out and losing his dredge to the repo man. The Pomrenke duo are back at it as well — this father/son team pulled in a record-setting haul last summer but Shawn Pomrenke, the self-proclaimed "Mr. Gold," has never succeeded under the ice.

"Bering Sea Gold" is produced for Discovery Channel by Original Productions, a Fremantle Media company. For Original Productions, executive producers are Thom Beers, Philip D. Segal, Jeff Conroy, John Gray, Sheila McCormack and Cameron Glendenning. For Discovery Channel, executive producer is David Pritikin.
