In addition to offering an inside look at one of America’s oldest industries, Wicked Tuna also sheds light on important issues surrounding the fate of the bluefin tuna. Captains adhere to U.S. regulations that determine size limits and quotas for the season.

Wicked Tuna is one of our strongest franchises” said Nat Geo president Howard T. Owens. Wicked Tuna was renewed by National Geographic Channel for a sixth season, which premiered on March 12, 2017.
