John "Johnny" Mavar – Deckhand
Johnny made a brief appearance on Deadliest Catch back in the day aboard the Farwest Leader. He has been crab fishing for 15 years and has his own Bristol Bay salmon operation that he has fished for over 27 years. His role aboard the Cornelia is to teach the less experienced crew how to really keep a deck in top-notch order. His ability to lock a stack down and sort crab efficiently are where he showcases his value and experience.
An early riser, Johnny pushes the crew to accomplish more in a day than they think is possible. He's also a whiz in the galley, and we all know how much a crab crew can eat... If you recognize his last name from the Northwestern, it's because Nick Mavar and Johnny are brothers. Last season, Johnny dealt with an infected finger and crushed his hand in the block, but nonetheless soldiered on, tapping into his old-school mentality and setting an example for the young generation to follow.
