Josh Harris celebrates his birthday on 18 March; whereas, his birth year is 1983. He currently ages 37 years old. The US citizen was raised alongside his brother Jake Harris - a cast member of Deadliest Catch - by parents: Phil and Mary Harris.
Josh first appeared in the show in 2007. Since then, he has been in different versions of The Deadliest, like American Chopper: Deadliest Catch Bike and After The Catch.
As Josh did not have enough money to buy the boat at first, he continued to work as a fisherman to keep his word. He struggled a lot during the time as his brother Jake dove deeper into drug addiction.
