The husband of Mandy Hansen and son-in-law to Sig Hansen, Clark Pederson is an aspiring fisherman.

He holds dual graduate degrees from Washington State University and the California State University Maritime Academy.

A third mate with an unlimited license, he works at Shaver Transportation on the Columbia River as a captain-in-training.

With limited fishing experience, he joined the crew members of F/V Northwestern as the new greenhorn in 2017.

However, he hopes to join the Columbia River Pilots, and also the American Professional Mariners Association in the coming future.

He married his long-time girlfriend and fellow crew member, Mandy Hansen on June 10, 2017, after getting engaged on May 25 the same year.

Their wedding was carried out in a traditional Norwegian style at the Pacific Fisherman Shipyard in front of the F/V Northwestern.

The couple currently resides in Vancouver, Washington, but moves from place to place whenever they get a call from work.

They are often seen posting pictures together on their social media accounts.
