One of the most prominent residents of Astoria, Oregon, in 1947, was George Moskovita, one of the first fishermen to trawl at the mouth of the Columbia River. Markets were so bad that George fished for mink food, and he was one of the first boats to fish for shark livers during World War II. George documented his fishing with pictures, and his family tape recorded and transcribed his adventures. Oregon State University press republished his book , Living off the Pacific Ocean Floor, in 2015.
