MA Lobsterman Dies in Accident

Boston.com: For Peter Prybot, lobstering was not just a profession but a way of life. For more than 40 years, he caught and sold the crustaceans, wrote about the fishing industry, and photographed the people, places, and boats.

Authorities said Prybot, 63, of Gloucester, died Sunday doing what he loved.

His leg appears to have gotten tangled in the line of one of his traps, and he ended up in the water, according to the Essex district attorney’s office.
