The Last Waterman of Wittman

Steve Jones of Wittman, Md., has spent his entire life in the crabbing industry — an industry that is dying by the way.  Listen In Pictures follows Jones during his final days of the crabbing season. Jones is joined by his son who was about to leave home in the fall for college.

“I made him hate it and I made him hate it for a reason,” Jones says in the video. It’s a heartbreaking testimony about the difficult calling that Jones went into. He’s a fourth generation crabber and the last of a dying breed. [via doobybrain]
