CSIRO at Sea:

50 Years of Marine Science

CSIRO at Sea

CSIRO went to sea in 1936, when it established a Fisheries Investigation Section. The story of what became the CSIRO Divisions of Fisheries and Oceanography is traced through articles written by some 30 past and present members of staff.

They draw a vivid picture of the early years of marine science in Australia. Fascinating reading not only for marine scientists, but also for all those who wonder what lies out beyond the breakers on Australia's shores.
