‘Deadliest Catch’ star Nick Mawr dies at 59 after ‘medical emergency’

Nick Mawer, a fisherman who was a deckhand on the reality TV show “Deadlist Catch,” died Thursday in Alaska.

He is 59 years old.

Mavar, who was born in Croatia and worked aboard the F/V Northwestern, suffered a medical emergency in Nagnek, the police chief of the Bristol Bay Borough Police Department told Deadline.

Mawar was taken to a hospital where he died of natural causes, the chief said.

From 2005 to 2021, he appeared in 98 episodes of the ongoing Discovery Channel series about the horrific conditions faced by commercial lobster fishermen.

The fisherman can also be seen in its spinoffs like “Deadlist Catch: Siberian Winter” and “Deadlist Catch: The Bait”.

He abruptly left the show after his appendix broke on the ship during a December 2020 cruise.

A well-documented serious medical incident in the series led Maver to sue one of the yacht’s owners, Chick Hansen, and his wife.

Mawar said he did not receive prompt medical treatment during the pandemic.

Mawar alleges serious complications in his case as a result of delayed care.

Fisher’s death comes a few years after the 2020 deaths of former “Deadliest Catch” co-stars Mahlon Reiss and Nick McClashon.
