Myliobatis tenuicaudatus, Southern Eagle Ray

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A common coastal species (population size estimated >10,000), the Southern Eagle Ray (Myliobatis tenuicaudatus) has a wide distribution across southern Australia, Norfolk Island and around New Zealand including the Kermadec Islands (geographic range >20,000 km²). Although taken in a wide
variety of fisheries this species is often released or discarded in New Zealand, although it is increasingly being retained for its meat. Monitoring in a major Australian fishery showed no trend in catches between 1998 and 2006. There is nothing to suspect a population size reduction of >30% and this species is assessed as Least Concern.
