Green Sawfish

Cairns Marine special operations manager Geoff Oke and Stirling Peverell are untangling the mesh from the rostrum of a 5.4m mature female green sawfish caught off Yorkey Knob, Cairns. The sawfish was caught and reported to Cairns Marine by a local commercial fisher. The sawfish was tagged and released unharmed. The find was unique as it was the first record of capture of this species at this size on the Queensland east coast in 30 years.
