In this chapter, the early twentieth century study of acclimatization in Victoria further explores fish acclimatization and the decentralization of regional fish acclimatization societies; it also recognizes aquaculture as a solution for declining fish stocks. Organizations such as Geelong and Western District Fish Acclimatising Society (GWDFAS), Ballarat Fish Acclimatisation Society (BFAS), and scientist Sir Samuel Wilson, supported fish acclimatization with interest in breeding, protection of fish, and restoring damaged fisheries. A new generation of fisheries scientists like William Saville-Kent documented their experiences and discovered how to professionally manage fisheries. With innovations like these, the emerging Australian nation was inextricably bound to introduced species and environmental change to feed and understand itself, while also constrained by and aware of past mistakes.

Keywords:   fish acclimatization, decentralization, declining fish stocks, Geelong and Western District Fish Acclimatising Society (GWDFAS), Ballarat Fish Acclimatisation Society (BFAS), Samuel Wilson, protection of fish, restoring damaged fisheries, William Saville-Kent, Fisheries and Game Branch of the Department of Agriculture
