Leonard Janiszewski, Effy Alexakis

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/WebsiteArticle


Greeks have traditionally had a close affinity with the sea, not only as a means of passage but also as a means of both domestic and commercial subsistence. For over two hundred years, Australian waters have continued to nourish this association. Part 2 of this article looks at the variety and diversity of employment and enterprise offered by the sea to Greek-Australians, together with adventure and recreation.
