Male Srakane is an island in the Croatian part of the Adriatic Sea, which is situated between Lošinj, Unije and Susak, just south of Vele Srakane.

Name[edit]

During the Austro-Hungarian Empire (until end of World War I) the two islands were called Klein- und Gross-Kanidol.

Inhabitants[edit]

According to statistics it has a current, reported population of just two people,[1] who only reside temporarily on the island in the summer. The inhabitants usually make a living from fishing and agriculture. In 1940-50 approximately 30 people made a living on the island and by late 1960 only two ladies remained on the island. The two residents that live on the island are not original residents.
