About The Event

Every morning for over 150 years, fishers have been plying the waters of the Gippsland Lakes in search of the wide variety of seafood the region has to offer. In 2018 the remaining 10 Gippsland Lakes commercial fishing licensees were informed that they would be compulsory acquired, ending a multi generation and historically significant fishery.

This exhibition documents and acknowledges the contribution and social cultural history of Australia's oldest small scale commercial fisheries that have operated since the 1800s.

END OF AN ERA: the Last Gippsland Lakes Fishermen, features photographs capturing the final moments of small scale commercial fishing in the Gippsland Lakes, accompanied with historical artefacts and film.

The exhibition will be on display for the duration of the Wild Harvest Seafood Festival and finishes on Saturday 4th May
