Freshwater Sawfish (Pristis microdon)

Mohamed bin Zayed Species project number 13256663

Mohamed bin Zayed Species Conservation (Project No. 13256663) - Freshwater Sawfish - Awarded $11,400 on November 26, 2013

The freshwater sawfish (Pristis pristis) was once found on Australia’s east coast but has not been recorded for many years. With the help of traditional owners we will use underwater cameras and gillnets to investigate reports that freshwater sawfish inhabit  the untouched rivers of eastern Cape York.
