Rays--disc-shaped cousins of sharks and skates--are common inhabitants of the Chesapeake Bay. Join Bob Fisher, a fisheries and seafood technology specialist at VIMS, as he describes the importance of rays in the Bay ecosystem and explores whether a ray fishery might help reduce their reported consumption of farmed shellfish. The lab will offer a look at the distribution of rays around the world, information about the dangers of ray ?stingers? and activities to distinguish rays from skates. This lab will focus on the Cownose Ray.
