Fishermen populate this side of the island.


Hi,
Does "populate" in the above amount to "dwell in" and "inhabitate?" Thanks.

    Yes. Fishermen contribute to the population on that side of the island, so they could be said to live, reside, or dwell there. They could also be said to inhabit that part of the island.

    Hope this helps!
