Abstract: The smalltooth sawfish population in US waters has been decimated by years of fishing (commercial and recreational) and habitat loss. Despite the severe decline in the sawfish population little biological data is available for the development of conservation actions. The aim of this project was to gather conservation relevant data on sawfish using targeted surveys and acoustic telemetry. Data from other researchers, fishermen, and the public was also gathered. The results of this data are being used to evaluate the critical habitat of smalltooth sawfish.
