Deadliest Catch Video Game

Deadliest Catch is a show on the Discovery Channel that chronicles the lives of crab fisherman in the Bering Sea. While I was watching the other night I realized that it had good potential for an interesting video game. You would play as the captain of a boat. You'd have the obvious task of finding the best crab and managing your traps, but you'd also need to do things like keep morale high, avoid the ice, manage the weight of your deck (traps and ice), decide which type of crab to get a license for, hire and pay your crew, maintain your equipment, etc. I'm not saying this should be the next XBox360 title, but I think it would do well as a Live Arcade game or a cheap computer game. Matt, pitch the idea to your management! I expect to see this at E3 next year.
