About This Project

The Critically Endangered Largetooth Sawfish is one of the most threatened of all marine fishes. They have historically been, and still are, exploited for their toothy saw. After global declines, Brazil is likely the last place this species is found in the Atlantic.This project aims to use DNA from old saws to assess Largetooth Sawfish genetic health in Brazil which is a critical step to giving this species a fighting chance against extinction.
