Mutton Fish: The Surviving Culture of Aboriginal People and Abalone on the South Coast of New South Wales

Mutton fish, or abalone, is a subsistence food – easy to find and harvest, extremely rich in energy and accessible, for as long as the beaches are open to all. Mutton Fish explores the relationship of Aboriginal people to the NSW south coast and the effects of the coastal resources being restricted by European competition. Text incorporates lively interviews with south-coast Koori fishing families.
