How did Edgar Hansen earn his money and wealth?

Edgar Hansen was born on January 14, 1971 in Seattle, Washington, United States to Sverre Hansen and Snefryd Hansen. Edgar Hansen has two elder siblings Sig Hansen and Norman Hansen. He is married to Louise Hansen and has three children Stefanie Hansen, Logan Hansen and Erik Hansen.

Edgar Hansen is not only an American commercial fisherman but also a reality television star. He has been associated with the sea since his childhood days and began fishing at the age of 18. His father and his elder brother trained him for fishing. To start with, Edgar Hansen began working as a cook in his brother Sig Hansen’s sailing vessel “NorthWestern” Besides, he also worked as a Relief Skipper as well as Deck Boss while his brother Sig served as the captain. He later also worked as the chief engineer of the vessel and was responsible for both, the main as well as the auxiliary engines, the hydraulic and fuel systems, and lastly the sea water pumps as well. Since the time he began working, Edgar Hansen has met all the demands of the crew efficiently.

One of the crab boats and the crew starred on the reality television series, “Deadliest Catch” which aired on the Discovery Channel. This is how Edgar Hansen came into the limelight and became famous in the television industry. He is well-known for his reputation of being tough and fair and is famous for his cooking skills. The crew of the “NorthWestern” have gained popularity since the time the first season of the “Deadliest Catch” TV series premiered and has collected high ratings for the Discovery Network. Since he was 18, Edgar Hansen has been fishing.

Although he is at times tough on the crew in order to maintain the safety standards, he is also quite gentle as one can see his gesture in the year 2009 when he sacrificed a small part from his own pay so that Jake Anderson could be the full-share deckhand. The Hansen brothers are the fourth generation of the Norwegian fishermen and celebrate the Norwegian Independence Day and other holidays when they do not go fishing. While he believes working for the “NorthWestern” is significant and important, maintaining a balanced life at the sea with his family sometimes leaves him conflicted.

Therefore, most recently it was reported that he had given up the sea life to spend time and stay with his family. Edgar has also appeared in “After the Catch” and “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and WAAF FAM Hill-Man Morning show as well.
