'Deadliest Catch' Star Honored -- One Year After Death

2/9/2011 2:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

It's been one year since "Deadliest Catch" star Captain Phil Harris passed away -- and TMZ has learned his sons will honor his memory in the place they felt closest to him ... on a fishing boat.

We're told Jake and Josh Harris are currently on board the boat their dad made famous -- the F/V Cornelia Marie because they feel their dad would have wanted them to treat the day like any other day ... and continue to run the family business.

Sources close to the family tells us the boys just wrapped up a successful season of Opilio crabbing and are now headed to Kodiak, AK for cleaning and repairs. 

As we previously reported, both Jake and Josh have expressed interest in following in Phil's footsteps ... and captain their own boats one day.

Someone at TMZ really likes this show, too bad the majority of the rest of us could care less.

Maybe when they stop glamorizing foul mouthed commercial fisherman who don't take care of themselves or the ocean they rape.

of course they'll follow in his footsteps, dying ugly hacking vile premature deaths brought on by smoking, excess weight, sedentary living, and stress. YUCK! I so agree with the sixth commenter, LOL< who cares???? I guess he became one of the "stars" of a hit television show, but I don't eat crab and always thought the whole exercise was cruel and hideous. Who gives a rip (or who gives a RIP). They're all low lifes.

You call North Sea fishing a "sedentary" life? You're an idiot. You got the stressful part right, but not from intelligence..that was only luck on your part.
