    The College of Fisheries at the University of Washington was established in 1919. John Nathan Cobb was the College's first Director and the school offered courses in fisheries, ichthyology, and fundamentals of canning, fishery products and cannery management. Around 1928, the College's facilities were no longer adequate to meet the needs of the growing program and a report was submitted requesting financial support from the University to expand. It's unclear if the report was answered, but in 1928 the college became part of the College of Science under the new name, Department of Fisheries. It was not until 1950 that the College of Fisheries moved into their own updated facilities. less
