You may never have seen a fish like this. It's called a sawfish. It's pretty easy to know why.
One was caught off Boynton Beach, Florida last weekend. A TV station, WSVN, and AOL.com reported about it.
Dustin Richter and his friends caught the fish. The sawfish has a long snout. It features razor-sharp teeth on either side, like a saw. The fish use the snouts to dig through the ocean floor or cut their prey.
Richter and his friends released their sawfish back into the ocean.
The National Wildlife Federation says sawfish are most likely dying out. It is very easy for their snouts to get tangled up in fishing nets.
