Summary
Describes fishing since colonisation and the early years when European and other settlers exploited the environment through over-fishing, leaving supplies dwindling. This caused legislation to be brought in on the size of a catch allowed and what areas needed natural replenishment before fishing could resume; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people relied on fishing for food as their traditional food sources were becoming scarce due to the establishment of cattle and sheep stations; historical photos and paintings of Indigenous people catching fish using various types of fishing technology
