Sawfish Underwater Photos

A female smalltooth sawfish recently photographed off Marathon.

Notice the healed wound on its right pectoral fin, perhaps made during a mating attempt by a male or from a past encounter with a predator.

All four photographs are of the same fish, resting in 117 feet of water (35.7 m).  Its length was estimated at between 15 to 16 feet (4.5-4.9 m) in length.
