Endangered (EN) and critically endangered (CR) species comprised six fishes and reptiles, namely, Narcine bancroftii and Pristis
pectinata (CR) and Sphyrna lewini, S.
Research on the smalltooth sawfish (Pristis
pectinata) has shown that areas of estuarine nurseries, called hotspots, are used consistently.
Although the specimen is labelled Pristis
Antiquorum, it is now thought to be the same as the common sawfish Pristis Pristis
Concerns over bycatch of another protected species, smalltooth sawfish, Pristis
pectinata, resulted in a partnership to test the ability of electronic technology to monitor interactions in 2013.
Biological and cultural significance of the freshwater sawfish (Pristis
microdon) in the Fitzroy River, Kimberley, Western Australia.
The rare occurrence of Carcharhinus and Pristis
, both taxa confined today to warm-temperate to tropical waters, in the temperate waters of Early Eocene in Antarctica indicates that both were not primary inhabitants but migrated along open trans-equatorial seaways into Southern Hemisphere waters (Kriwet 2005).
But Barbara Wueringer of the University of Western Australia in Crawley got a rare chance for a more natural look at a freshwater sawfish, Pristis
microdon, in tanks in Australia just after the fish were collected from the wild.
