Episode 3

It's time to get wild with the latest episode of Adventure and Wildlife - Hosted by the Shark Brothers! 

Commercial crabbing is a family tradition for the Santini Family. Five generations have pulled crab pots from Florida’s waters to make a living. In this episode, the Shark Brothers, join father and son team, Gene and Nick Santini of Punta Gorda, Florida, as they continue the family’s commercial fishing legacy by harvesting blue crabs and other edible species from the Peace River and Charlotte Harbor.

After the catch, the crab's journey is followed to Peace River Seafood, a local restaurant and fish market. Here, the they are either steamed for 13 minutes and served to the restaurant's diners, sold in the onsite seafood market, distributed to other local restaurants and markets or shipped out of state to places like Maryland or California.

The episode's Conservation Spotlight Segment features a visit to the Peace River Wildlife Center in Punta Gorda. This non-profit facility is dedicated to the rescue, care, protection and preservation of the area's injured or orphaned native wildlife and public education.
