Jake Anderson from "Deadliest Catch" is an Alaskan crab fisherman on the Northwestern fishing vessel in the Discovery Channel documentary series.

An eager young fisherman, Jake Anderson is determined to learn every job on the Northwestern. He has been all about fishing since he was 17, working on boats in Bristol Bay, Alaska. During that time he picked up the dream of working on the Northwestern. He got his break when it turned out he knew Nick Mavar's brother (their families share the same hometown). Thanks to the Mavar recommendation, Capt. Sig and the Northwestern crew decided to give Jake a shot as a greenhorn. In 2009, his hard work paid off and he was advanced to a full-share crew member.

Capt. Sig recently showed his appreciation for Jake's commitment in a very special way. Last year, after Nick's sister Chelsea passed away, the captain encouraged Jake to go ashore to be with his family. Sig assured Jake that his spot would be open when he returned.
