Distribution of the Critically Endangered Giant Guitarfish (Glaucostegus typus) based on Local Ecological Knowledge in the Andaman Islands, India.


  • Local Ecological Knowledge provided baseline data on giant guitarfishes in India.

  • Identification of critical giant guitarfish habitats can aid in their conservation.

  • Our data suggest that juveniles may use shallow coastal waters as nursery grounds.

  • If protected, the Islands could be a hotspot for these Critically Endangered species.
