Located in Exhibit Hall by FishingNosara Booth

Captain Dave Marciano is professional commercial fisherman and a cast member of the reality TV Show “Wicked Tuna” on the National Geographic Channel (streaming on Disney+).  The show is based on the commercial tuna fishermen in Gloucester, Massachusetts and began airing on the National Geographic Channel on April 1, 2012. Captain Marciano is an original cast member.

Wicked Tuna depicts the lives of commercial fishermen at sea, how they work, and their personal histories. The different boats and crews compete on the show to bring home the biggest haul of Bluefin Tuna. While the crews compete against each other, they ultimately are in conflict with high seas, extreme weather, and the economics of commercial fishing.”Wicked Tuna” has higher demand than 97.5% of all Reality titles in the US, and Captain Marciano is a fan favorite of the show’s more than one million viewers. Dave has been a part of the North Carolina- based spin-off series “Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks” since its debut on August 17, 2014.
