Sawfish are cartoonish looking fish that resemble a shark but with a saw for a nose, also known as their rostrum.
Their elongated rostrum has around 20-30 teeth on each side that are used for sensing, hunting, and defense.
They are in the order Rajiformes which are flattened cartilaginous fishes related to sharks such as skates and rays.
The smalltooth sawfish are found in tropical and subtropical areas of the Atlantic Ocean including the Caribbean
and the Gulf of Mexico. They are mostly found in coastal marine and estuarine waters near mangroves. Individuals
have been found up to 18 feet long.
Sawfish were hunted nearly to extinction in the late 1800’s to the early 1900’s. They were captured for their unusual
appearance and their saw-like rostrums were used as trophies.
Today they are listed as critically endangered as their range has greatly reduced in size. Scientists estimate that the
sawfish population in the United States is less than 5% of the historical population.
Sawfish are often seen during the boat rides of Everglades Day Safari ecotours through the Everglades National Park.

completing her degree, Stacy found her love for Miami and the surrounding areas in part due to its ease
of access to the nearby Everglades and Big Cypress ecosystems. After visiting the Everglades for the first
time she was hooked and took every opportunity to learn more and go back whenever she could. The vastness
and constant unknown of what you will encounter on each visit keeps her going back every chance she gets.
She loves “how you can go to the same place a million times but each time you have a completely different
