BA Greenhorn – Age 25, Seattle, Wash.
Sean’s friend since they were 2 years old, Per felt honored and proud to have been Sean’s first choice as the greenhorn for the return of the Brenna A to crabbing last year. An avid rock climber, Per hopes that the crabbing profession can fund his outdoor passion. Last season, Per started as a very green greenhorn, with just 2 ½ months of factory trawler experience. Despite being at the bottom of the pecking order, Per maintained a positive attitude and shrugged it off with a smile and a bad joke (and once even slurped down cod guts as punishment for missing a hook toss!). Exhibiting the requisite grit for the job, Per managed to continue working after a rib injury from a bait bag. When Sean elected to fire an incompetent deckhand, Per stepped up to help fill the void, steadily ascending the ranks. As the new season approaches, look for Per to continue maturing as a vital contributor to the Brenna A while embracing the adventure on the high seas.
