Port Phillip Bay was created as a result of geological uplift and subsequent sinking of the land. Over millions of years, the land has risen and fallen due to geological forces, which caused the Bay to form. The Bay is now a drowned river valley that was filled with water from the sea as the land subsided. The area was originally inhabited by the indigenous Wathaurong people, who used the Bay for fishing, hunting and trading. In the 19th century, Port Phillip Bay was a major point of entry for European settlement in Victoria, Australia. The city of Melbourne was established on the shores of the Bay in 1835 and grew rapidly as a result of the Victorian gold rush in the 1850s. Throughout the 20th century, the Bay played a significant role in the economic development of Victoria as a major port for shipping and recreation. Today, Port Phillip Bay is a popular destination for boating, fishing and other water-based activities, as well as being a crucial part of Melbourne history and cultural identity.
Port Phillip Bay is a rich and diverse fishery, and a variety of fish species can be caught in its waters. Some of the most commonly caught species in the Bay include Australian Snapper, Whiting, Dusky Flathead, Macquarie Perch, Black Bream, and Kingfish. In addition to these species, the Bay is also home to a variety of other fish such as Salmon, Tuna, and Sardines, making it a popular destination for recreational and commercial fishing.
