During the Corellian/Aqualish war c.4000 BBY, the struggle between the Aqualish and Corellians fought for control of Goroth Prime's mining resources.

In 17 BBY the Gorothites were enslaved by the Galactic Empire under the control of Governor Marsh Limoth and Moff Nebin Cray. The Night Wind resistance movement arose in response. The Gorothite were eventually freed by the Alliance to Restore the Republic shortly after the Battle of Yavin.
