AU WA A485 - FISHERIES DEPARTMENT  (1893-01-01 - 1909-01-01)
The Fisheries Department originated in 1893 when 4 officers were appointed to a Fisheries sub-department, headed by a Commissioner of Fisheries under the control of the Department of the Commissioner for Crown Lands. In 1909 the Aborigines and Fisheries Departments were amalgamated into one department.
Records were originally donated to the J.S. Battye Library then transferred to the State Records Office in October 2016 as part of the Separation of Collection project. Previous call numbers are identified with the items.
