“rabo de peixe” is a village at the north side of s. miguel (azores) with a strong relation to the sea and of what we can get from it. it stands for a long history on fishery and brave people that rely all their income in the uncertainty of nature. unfortunately, its also a place with severe social problems and low resources.
