He was born April 28, 1966 in Seattle, Washington and has a Norwegian ancestry. As a kid he often cut school so he could go fishing. As a teenager, he already was climbing his way through the ship’s hierarchy. At the age of 24, Hansen became already a captain of fishing vessel named Northwestern. That tells you what kind of passion this man has for his job.

In 2005, the show Deadliest Catch was introduced. This made Hansen a celebrity. The show depicts the dangerous life of fishermen on the sea. In 2010, Sig published a book named North By Northwestern: A Seafaring Family on Deadly Alaskan Waters and also appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He even competed on The Celebrity Apprentice recently.

Hansen lives with his wife June Hansen and their two daughters, Mandy and Nina. They reside in Seattle. As his net worth continues to climb into stellar heights, Sig remains the same down-to-earth guy. We wish him all the best on the sea as well as in show business.
