Hardliners goes to sea with the rugged long line tuna fishermen of Australia. This observational documentary series focuses on three larger-than-life skippers and their crews as they hunt for the highly lucrative wild tuna off the east coast. While the rewards can be great so can the dangers. Long liners defy monster storms, sharks and fatigue trying to catch tuna while avoiding large commercial ships that steam along the coast and often cut their fishing lines.
Hardliners provides a remarkable and fascinating insight into human endurance and bravery. In the end, viewers will marvel at the sheer guts, good humour and true grit of the Hardliners.
