Dave Marciano career development, his tuna fishing career, and television shows
Wicked Tuna’s Captain Dave Marciano attended the Gloucester High School, and throughout his school life, we used to fish and work on a Yankee Fleet Boat. However, he did not have any special interest in school because he knew since he was young that he wanted to become a fisherman. Therefore, he spent most of his time on the boat than in school.
The company he worked for offered him whale watching and fishing trips and sooner he learned a lot there. He became friends with the staff and soon after graduation, he was offered a permanent position and later became a captain.
Because he yearned to make more cash than he did when he was a captain, he bought his boat after three years and started working. This was a very smart move because this not only made him a lot of money but made his name known all over.
The producers of ‘Wicked Tuna,’ a show aired by National Geographic Channel offered him a job, and he joined the series in its 6th season as a cast member.
