Rare Fish Pulled Up in Fujairah

No details of the catch of this fish have been received but the photos on a web site seem to indicate this was the work of a Fujairah fishing boat team.

Details have been sought as to when this fish was caught and exactly where it was caught. These will be posted if and when they come to hand.

Any information from zoologists and fishing people about the name of this fish and whether other specimens have been found around Fujairah would be gratefully received.

Post Script

Dr Andrew McGowan, Principal of Melbourne’s Trinity College says: “It's a (critically endangered) sawfish, genus -Pristis-. All too rare indeed.
