The 2nd Fleet was a fleet in the naval branch of the Galactic Republic formed between 22 BBY and 19 BBY. During the Clone Wars between the Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, the 2nd Fleet was stationed in the Quellor sector, the location of the Neimoidian Purse Worlds, which belonged to the Confederate-aligned Trade Federation.
Because of these purse-worlds, the 2nd Fleet blockaded the sector, and as a result fought against the CIS Trade Federation Home Defense Legions and its enormous fleet of Lucrehulk-class Battleships, which kept the Republic fleet at bay. As one of the twenty mainline fleets of the Republic Navy, it was attached to a Sector Army of the Grand Army of the Republic.

- Rise of the Separatists
- Per Rise of the Separatists, the 2nd Fleet belonged to the Republic Navy. The navy, according to the same source, was established at the outbreak of the Clone Wars, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 22 BBY. Galactic Atlas also mentions that the Clone Wars ended in 19 BBY. Since the 2nd Fleet was active during the Clone Wars and was under the Republic Navy, it can be inferred that the fleet was founded during the Clone Wars, between 22 BBY and 19 BBY.
