Harris adds in his post that it had nothing to do with the decisions of the captains.

Discovery and the company running "Deadliest Catch" has sole creative control of what happens with the series. It's unclear why they fired one of the main stars of the show. The Cornelia Marie has been on the show throughout its 12 seasons on the air.

Harris informed viewers that he and his crew are still taking to the sea for king crab season, but the only thing missing will be the camera crew. He thanked viewers for their support and continued that they'll still be fishing this season even if their adventures won't be broadcast on the popular television show.

Captain has other plans

Captain Harris concluded his farewell post to the show by telling fans that he'll still keep them updated on Facebook. He piqued curiosity by writing that he has some other projects in the works he's excited to embark upon. As they unfold, Harris will enlighten his followers what he's doing. The "Deadliest Catch" star teased that his father always told him he could be an astronaut and he said it's "going to happen."

If fans want to start a petition over the captain's firing, Harris requests fans save themselves the trouble.
