‘Netting Fish’? ‘Catching Rabbitfish’? ‘When there is seaweed, there must be groupers nearby’?...... Do you know the special meaning of these words to South Lamma islanders? Do you want to know more about the islanders’ life and their stories?
From February to August 2021, the project interviewed quite a few residents of South Lamma. These islanders from different backgrounds shared their memories of this place, personal and family anecdotes, and the changes in the way of living and community landscape. The research team is going to share their experiences and insights on the island in this event.
