Jeremy Wade who presents River Monsters covered the species in an episode. He actually went to Australia if I remember rightly, what an absolutely awesome fish. They actually captured some to put into captivity so they could breed them to put back into the wild. Very very sensitive fish.

I may not always be right, but I am always the BOSS :-)

Yes it was in the Fitzroy River Australia. I saw one in an oceanarium. I wish though the fish is more common, but people think their saws are cool trophies and it gets snagged in nets and are kiled because of that. Actually that sawfish species is a cousin although the taxonomy of Pristis sp. is confusing.
