About This Project
I am studying sawfish in Papua New Guinea (PNG) to assess their current status in the suitable habitats they are likely to occur. The only data on sawfish in PNG are spot records and in unpublished survey reports. Surveys conducted in the lower Ramu River (Madang Province) in the 1970s and 1980s indicate that sawfish were common in these waters. This project will investigate their current status in this river system to direct conservation efforts on sawfish in PNG.
