Notes

At the time of her visit Jenny Giles worked at CSIRO Marine Research, Cleveland, Queensland.

She was employed on a project to assess sawfish catch characteristics in Northern Australia, by collating available data from all fishing methods and sectors. The work was part of a wider study on the sustainability of shark and ray bycatch in the region.

During her visit Jenny examined whole sawfish specimens along with large rostrums (saws) held in the Australian Museum Fish Collection.

Jenny worked at the Australian Museum in May 2004.
