“Wicked Tuna” star Nicholas “Duffy” Fudge has died at the age of 28.
The death was announced on the show’s Facebook page. He had been on the show since 2013. The announcement only said that he died last week, and did not give any more details or a cause.
The show, which airs on National Geographic, depicts fisherman as they try to catch bluefin tuna, which can weigh hundreds of pounds. Fudge was a New Hampshire-based fisherman who served as first mate to Captain Tyler McLaughlin on their fishing vessel, Pinwheel.
