special tribute by the Discovery Channel.
Starting with next week's episode, the late fisherman's death will get a spotlight on the show -- culminating in a tribute episode called "After the Catch" on July 13.
Discovery Channel President Clark Bunting said in a statement to EW, “Captain Phil was a father, fisherman, funny man and, most importantly for fans worldwide, a friend. We celebrate his life and all those he has touched through Deadliest Catch."
Capt. Harris died on February 9 after suffering a stroke while offloading his fishing vessel in Alaska.
