Sounds like a movie title.... thought of sharing this article which was forwarded across to me by a buddy, I found it interesting and in relation to the piece I read somewhere on I.A. about the world record Black Marlin being slaughtered.

Heard a similar story recently from one of our IA member, where a ray started delivering babies while landed. Fortunately the fish was released immediately.

Regards,

Ali.

yup i remember that something like that happened when i was fishing at dona paula, some bloke caught a ray/kite fish (two palms size big), and after he landed it, it started delivering babies.... strange thing wonder if this is a regular thing with rays n kites.

Rays giving birth while landed are becoming more and more common. I recently watched a documentary where extreme Angler Jeremy Wade landed a monster ray off the coast of Thailand...while they were measuring her and gathering data she gave birth to live rays in the net itself...the mother and little ones were released :)
