F/V Hard Merchandise
Catch the crew of Hard Merchandise for the 5th season of NatGeo’s show WICKED TUNA, Mondays at 9pm. And watch for Season Three of Wicked Tuna – Outer Banks to be airing later!
Welcome to the website of the F/V Hard Merchandise and Angelica Fisheries!
We are one of Gloucester’s traditional, old school, commercial fishing vessels, working year round to feed the nation.
We are proud to be featured as part of the National Geographic Channel’s show “Wicked Tuna.” We think we are the wickedest tuna boat out there.
Traditionally we have fished groundfish; cod, haddock and pollack, year round commercially, as well as Giant Bluefin Tuna during the late summer/fall seasons. During a few months of the summer we make the boat available for limited specialty charters for hire. Contact us via email for more details and/or information on the charter packages available at any given time of the year and be sure to check the Charters page on this website.
The F/V Hard Merchandise is a 38ft Danielshead solid fiberglass Novi boat which may not be fast and fancy but we are efficient and we do catch fish. We at Angelica Fisheries think the Hard Merchandise is the bomb just as she is.
SEASON 5 is now airing!
We are so thankful we have been able to enjoy our 5 years (and counting) on this wicked cool show so far! Thank you all for watching – we hope you enjoy it as much as we do working on it!
Also stay tuned for news about Season 3 of Wicked Tuna: North VS South! NAT Geo – we love you!
