A bonnethead shark accidentally caught in a sawfish capture team's net is measured before it is released Saturday, Oct. 29, in Chokoloskee Bay. A joint tagging and tracking project by Florida State University and NOAA is trying to get a handle on the size of the sawfish population in Everglades National Park and is studying the endangered species' habits. Little is known about the elusive creatures that are related to sharks and rays.
