    Abstract

    This study investigated the ecology, morphology, habitat utilisation and population genetics of the vulnerable (Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act (EPBC) 1999) or critically endangered (IUCN) Freshwater Sawfish (Pristis microdon). It also examined the distribution and utility of satellite tags in tracking the movements of the endangered (EPBC Act 1999) or critically endangered (IUCN) Northern River Shark (Glyphis sp. C) in the Kimberley.
