Abstract

Donny MacVane, 79, of Long Island, and his sons, Stan, Tom, and Lee, all fish from a pier MacVane built of pieces partly salvaged from the World War II Navy dock on the island. MacVane, who was born in his home, has lobstered all his life and remembers one August in the 1950s when he caught 20,000 pounds of lobster. He says fishermen now are more harvesters than fishermen. With details on his fishing life and the innovations he brought to his work.
