Methods of harvesting oysters and crabs on the Chesapeake Bay have changed very little over the years.

The internal combustion engine, invented at the end of the 19th century, eventually displaced sails on workboats. The addition of hydraulic pumps and electric motors to power tongs and winches reduced the watermen's back-breaking labor. All these changes permitted work boats to travel farther and faster and harvest much more efficiently; yet the basic harvesting methods have stayed the same.
