The Oregon coast's crabbing industry goes before a national audience Tuesday as a new spinoff of the reality show 'The Deadliest Catch' debuts on TV.

'Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove' follows several crews of Dungeness crab fishermen and their families who call Newport, Oregon home.

Discovery says the crews featured in the show fight rough waters and harsh conditions in a derby style of crabbing in which boats race to be the first out and the first back to harbor, with millions of dollars on the line.

'Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove' premieres at 9 p.m. on Discovery Channel.
