"San Pedro" is Saint Peter from the New Testament. Christ called him from his fishing nets to become a "fisher of men" (i.e. a disciple of Christ who would help Christ seek other followers) in Matthew 4:18-20:

And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men. And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.

(King James Version).
