SUMMARY

SUMMARY

IDENTIFICATION

SCIENTIFIC NAME(s)

Raja clavata

SPECIES NAME(s)

Thornback ray

There is scarce information regarding the population structure of this species. According with the genetic studies available there is a low level of genetic differentiation between Thornback ray populations, across the Atlantic area, including Irish and Celtic Seas. Nevertheless, more information is needed (Chevolot et al. 2006)(Chevolot et al. 2006).

Fisheries

Within FishSource, the term "fishery" is used to indicate each unique combination of a flag country with a fishing gear, operating within a particular management unit, upon a resource. That resource may have a known biological stock structure and/or may be assessed at another level for practical or jurisdictional reasons. A fishery is the finest scale of resolution captured in FishSource profiles, as it is generally the scale at which sustainability can most fairly and practically be evaluated.
