There isn't anything stated explicitly that I can remember. The protagonist, Santiago, lives to fish. The old man's identity is steeped in the mythology of fishing. When he is on land Santiago feels old and impotent, he is teased by younger fishermen. When Santiago fishes he is Joe DiMaggio . The Old man feels alive.
