Dutch Harbor Clinic Denies T.V. Access

The Iliuliuk Family and Health Services clinic in Dutch Harbor has been caring for injured fishermen for decades. It is a beacon of compassion and competence in the North Pacific. It’s commitment to professionalism is reflected in its decision not to permit a T.V. show to invade the privacy of the clinic.

The Deadliest Catch’s access to scenes of injured fishermen inside the clinic has been cut off. The board of directors of the clinic unanimously declined permission to the production company to film in the building.

Before the vote was taken, clinic health care providers were asked by board chair Michelle Callaham how they felt about being rock stars and TV stars on the show that airs on the Discovery Channel featuring Bering Sea crab boats.

None spoke in favor.
