Zgodovina arhivskega gradiva
The Office for Maritime Affairs or the Office for the Supervision of Navigation was founded in 1745, at the time of a new increase of maritime affairs in the Dubrovnik Republic. It appears in archival sources under different following names: Officio della Navigazione, Officio alla Sopraintendenza della Navigazione, Sopraintendenza della Navigazione, Officio della Marina, Magistrato alla Navigazione. The office was managed by five senators, the so-called Officiali alla Sopraintendenza della Navigazione, who were initially elected for a term of five years, and from the 80s of the 18th centuries, for a term of three years. The office supervised the entire maritime affairs of the Dubrovnik Republic. For example, among other things, it conducted investigations and trials in the disputes of Dubrovnik seafarers and cooperated with the consulates of the Dubrovnik Republic in Mediterranean ports. Various maritime taxes were paid into the treasury of the Office, and among them were the tax arboratica and the tax arboratica et scarmi.

The fonds has been linked to the archive since its inception. In times of the Dubrovnik Republic, the books of the fonds were stored in the Rector’s Palace, and they remained there even after the fall of the Dubrovnik Republic in 1808. By 1891, the archival material was consolidated and was made available to researchers. The archive in the Rector's Palace has been functioning as an independent institution since 1920 and it was dislocated to the Sponza Palace in 1952, where it is still located today.
