An extinct sawfish fishery in mangroves of the Abrolhos Bank of eastern Brazil was investigated by interviewing four elderly and expert fishermen with local ecological knowledge of the area. Sawfish were usually caught with gill nets and longlines, as a secondary target of snooks (Centropomidae), Atlantic goliath grouper (Epinephelus itajara) and acoupa weakfish (Cynoscion acoupa) fisheries. Insights on the locally collapsed sawfish fisheries, traditional uses of the fish, and natural mortality events are given.
