Thornback ray are a highly prized catch for the angler. Thornback rays generally stay in water under one hundred metres deep, and in summer they will come into even shallower water like the sand banks around our imediate coast line.

With a distinctive kite shaped body, the Thornback Ray can also be recognised by its blotchy brown or grey back and collection of 'thorns' on its back and tail. The type of seabed is important when it comes to thornback ray fishing, Dentex fishermen have also caught Sting Ray.
