Sawfish, pristis sp., attacks its prey with its saw until the prey is small enough to eat. The saw is also used to defend the sawfish against predators. Sawfish live to around 25 years and reach maturity at 10 years. The smallest sawfish, dwarf sawfish, Pristis clavata, is about 4 feet long. The largest species, largetooth sawfish, Pristis microdon and the southern sawfish, Pristis perotteti, reach more than 23 feet long. After many years of incidental capture, and habitat destruction, sawfish populations worldwide are severely depleted. They are hunted for their rostrum, their fins, their liver oil and for use as medicine. It is estimated that there are 7 living species. Sawfish mature slowly and reproduce at a much lower rate than most fish. This makes sawfish especially slow to recover from overfishing. All species of sawfish are considered critically endangered and international trade is banned.
