The area of Sai Kung is popular with tourists for its renowned seafood restaurant row. However, seafood tourism goes on seemingly disconnected with the rich heritage of Sai Kung as a fishing village. NYU students Xiao Huang, Alex McIe, and Tommy V. Le traced the cultural and culinary pathways that make up seafood tourism in the town. Their study led to recommendations for making the fishing culture and coastal ecology alive for visitors to the area. Their work is an intriguing ethnography of the local seafood industry.
