Sawfish are large shark-like rays that once were relatively common in Florida’s coastal waters including Tampa Bay. Now, Florida’s smalltooth sawfish is endangered and scientists are striving to learn as much as possible about this iconic and fascinating fish. Tonya Wiley, President of Havenworth Coastal Conservation, will provide a presentation with interesting facts about sawfish, updates on Tampa Bay area sawfish research, explanations of management tools such as the Endangered Species Act, and descriptions of ways you can be involved in the recovery of smalltooth sawfish. Join us to see a three-foot sawfish replica, feel some real sawfish rostra (saws), and get some great free sawfish swag.
