Sawfish feed primarily on fish and prawns.
They can live for up to 50 years!
They're found in the Indo-West Pacific swimming in the open marine water.
Sawfish reach maturity when they're 9 years old and have litters of around 12 pups. Their teeth are unevenly spaced along the rostrum, and they have on average 24 to 28 pairs. Fishing is the primary threat to Green Sawfish as their rostrum or nose can easily get tangled and caught in fishing nets. Significant benefits have been gained through educating fishermen in how to safely release trapped sawfish from their nets.
2.5 million litres of water and 87 tonnes of salt make this display home to some of the most incredible animals in the sea.
