Life after television show:

Josh owned and co-captained Cornelia Marie alongside Casey. Things went awry for the television as the news of  Josh’s assault against a 4 year-old-girl came to flash on the media in 2022. In prompt response, showrunners cut ties with the captain. Josh appeared in 193 episodes of Deadliest Catch from 2007-2022 and was part of its several spin-offs.

After the sacking of Josh Harris, all eyes were on Casey McManus and F/V Cornelia Marie. Casey has reportedly distanced himself from Josh and left the show as well. In response to his exit from the show, Casey also commented on a Facebook Post:

“Not on the show. I moved to the Oil spill response/ salvage/ tug world. I have many adventures ahead, but crab fishing doesn’t really exist anymore, and I need to continue to make money.”
