Abstract

This is the first annual report of the study that is investigating the impacts of barriers to sawfish migrations in Western Australia. The Largetooth (or Freshwater) Sawfish (Pristis pristis) is the only species of sawfish (Pristidae) to inhabit the freshwater reaches of rivers, and thus is likely to be the sawfish species that is most impacted by instream barriers. As such, P. pristis is the primary subject of this study. This study is separated into multiple milestones or phases, with the general findings of Phase I and II, and status and preliminary findings of Phase III being discussed in this report. In depth analyses and discussions of all phases will available in the final report.
