'To most non-Aboriginal Australians, the mutton fish is known as abalone, a prized seafood delicacy. This book, which started life as a TAFE project, is an attempt by two Aboriginal women and their TAFE teacher to record an oral history of Aboriginal abalone fishing on the NSW South Coast.' Bruce Elder, Sydney Morning Herald, 1617 July 2005

Details

Mutton Fish, or abalone, is a subsistence food - easy to find and harvest, extremely rich in energyand accessible, for as long as the beaches are free and open to all. The coastal environment of the NSW south coast has nurtured its people for thousands of years. Mutton Fish explores this relationship and the effects of the coastal resources being progressively restricted by European competition.
