    Here is one about the green sawfishes: http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/fish/Gallery/Descript/Gre... that show the following

    Geographical Distribution

    The green sawfish appears to be confined to the Indian and western Pacific oceans, although the precise range in this vast area is not clear. In Africa, the species is often confused with the similar-looking smalltooth sawfish (Pristis pectinata). The green sawfish occurs along the eastern African coastline from South Africa, ranging north along the east coast through Somalia and the Gulf of Aden to as far north as the Red Sea. It probably does not occur in the Mediterranean Sea. From the Gulf of Aden it ranges east along the Indian coast to Thailand and south through Indonesia. In Australia it occurs from Broome (Western Australia) to Sydney (New South Wales), and a single record exists from off Glenelg in South Australia. The green sawfish occurs off southern China and Vietnam in the South China Sea, throughout the Philippines, south through Borneo and east to Papua New Guinea. The green sawfish no longer appears to be common anywhere in its range.
