This gallery explores Western Australia’s fishing industry, especially the contributions of our fishing communities. The gallery features stories from the past and the present that have helped shape the industry. See Aboriginal fish traps, stories of Fremantle’s Fishing Boat Harbour, the beautiful Broome pearling luggar Trixen, and learn about the history of Western Australia’s varied fishing industries.

The exhibition brings together a compelling mix of technological innovation, changing experiences and the challenges of managing the ever-increasing pressures on fish stocks.
