Photo: Stuart Argent via @sharksandraysau ・・・ ‘Wet season is upon us and we are patiently waiting until April when we can get back out to the field! We need field volunteers to help us! Apply now at saw.fish/expeditions 🦈🦈🦈 Here is a juvenile narrow sawfish (Anoxypristis cuspidata), which are often called ‘slimeys’ by local fishers because they don’t develop dermal denticles until they reach around 120cm total length. Juveniles are also born with hooks on the rostral teeth that disappear, however this one still has them!’ #sawfish #research #thisisqld #volunteer

It is important to research changes in mangroves and beaches, not only because they are of vital importance to wild flora and fauna, but because they act as natural barriers against tsunamis and help the ecosystem in different ways. . .

Over 24 hours we caught one tiger measuring 175cm and one large female nurse measuring 227 cm! Here’s lab managers @james.whicheloe & @angelwarrior77 and intern Dan preparing to insert a Casey tag into the nurse shark on our sunset check on Saturday 🦈’ . . #bimini #sharklab #bahamas #sharks #nurse #shark #research #marine #conservation #marinebiology #ocean #science #nature #wildlife #saveourseas #workup #olympus #sunset at Bimini Biological Field Station - Sharklab

Thank you so much and keep the sightings coming! Here is another photo of the 5m freshwater sawfish (Pristis pristis) taken at the Mulgrave River in 1938, which is an example of valuable information we can use to assess current and historical sawfish populations and distributions.’ #citizenscience #sawfish #research #endangered
