Spotted Eagle Ray

Manta Ray

A spotted eagle ray (Aetobatus narinari) glides effortlessly through the water. The rays are considered Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List and are caught mainly in Southeast Asia and Africa. They’re also common in commercial marine life trade and displayed in aquariums. Among the many efforts to help protect this species, South Africa’s decision to deploy fewer protective shark nets has reduced the number of deaths caused by entanglement. South Africa has also placed restrictions on the number of eagle ray that can be bought per person per day. Squirrelfish are closely related to Soldierfish.
