Industry standard is 20%. On our larger vessels, where there is a Captain and Mate, they split the 20%, and on our smaller vessels, 20% goes to the captain, as he or she also is your Mate. Think of your Crew like waiters of the sea! The pay structure is very similar but the work is physically grueling as they work long hours and weekends. Our crews don’t just fish, they also catch live bait at sunrise and maintain the boats and fishing equipment. They rely heavily on tips to make their living and feed their families.
