What happened to Angelica Marciano? Her wiki-bio, net worth, boyfriend?

Bluefin tuna is a prized catch that many fishermen covet, but few can get. The fish is scarce and regulated, and the fishing is hard and risky. The market pays a high price for this delicacy that has been part of the American industry for decades. Wicked Tuna is a reality show that showcases the drama and rivalry of the fishermen who chase the bluefin in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Among them is Angelica Marciano, a second-generation fisherman and a star of the show. She worked as a deckhand on her father’s boat, F/V Hard Merchandise. But she is more than just a fisherwoman. She is also a marketer, a film production assistant & location manager, and an adventurous traveler.

When Angelica was young, her family found it very difficult to live on fishing. As a result, Angelica would turn to rod and reel for fun. She also focused on her studies and graduated from Gloucester High School. Angelica pursued her further education at Newbury College in Brookline, Massachusetts, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and a minor in Psychology in 2014.

Commercial Fishing and Wicked Tuna

Angelica’s most notable role, however, is as a deckhand on the National Geographic series Wicked Tuna. The show follows the lives and challenges of commercial fishermen who compete to catch the elusive bluefin tuna in the Atlantic Ocean. She joined the cast of the show during season 7, in 2018 and started working as a deckhand on the fishing vessel Hard Merchandise. She took up the spot emptied by her cousin, Jay. In a few years’ time, Angelica worked her way to the family’s second vessel Falcon which Dave captained and her brother Joe served as the first mate. She appeared on the show until 2021. She also made appearances on the spin-off Wicked Tuna: Outer Banks also known as Wicked Tuna: North vs South. She proved herself to be a hard-working, fearless, and fun-loving member of the team, earning respect and admiration from her fellow fishermen and viewers alike.

Angelica thinks that working with her family while also getting paid is the best job there can be. Angelica operates by her tried and tested motto, “You don’t have to be the strongest or fittest, you just have to try”. However, she has currently focused on her career away from fishing and works as a location manager for movies and television shows. Talking about her fisherman journey, Angelica says;

“I’ve spent days at a time working in extreme conditions and weather. All hours on-call on a 43ft boat hundreds of miles off shore. I’ve successfully caught, handled, and processed bluefin tuna with only two other crewmen, fish all weighing between 400 to 1,000 pounds.”
