Few nursery areas of the largetooth sawfish remain due to the large-scale loss of healthy inland waterways that serve a critical function for this species. The Fitzroy River, in remote northern Australia is an exception to this trend, it is largely untouched by human activity and as a result is home to a large number of juvenile sawfish. This project will quantify the hydrological conditions required for sawfish survival, in order to promote the sustainable management of the river's waters.
