Captain Sig Hansen, born in Seattle, Washington, is a first generation American, a fourth generation fisherman, and one of the featured Captains on Discovery Channel's Deadliest Catch. He began commercial fishing at age 14 under the watchful eye of his father. After graduating from high school, he began fishing year-round, spending on average 10 months per year in Alaska.

At 22, Sig started relieving captains on the Northwestern. As one of the youngest captains in the fleet, Sig knew he had to either show results or get replaced. By 26, he began serving full time as the Captain of the Northwestern.

Over the years, the Northwestern has been a top producer with an excellent safety record. The Northwestern has never had any loss of life or serious injuries in the history of its operation and Captain Sig is proud of being able to carry on that flawless record started by his father. For the last 20 years he has delivered not only the crab, but his entire fleet safely. Sig considers this his greatest accomplishment for one of the world's most dangerous occupations.

Sig is the current Captain and Co-owner of the Northwestern, working with his two brothers, co-owner Edgar Hansen (Deck Boss) and Norman Hansen (Deck Hand).
