Tagged rays

​​Rays in Jersey

Jersey waters play host to a number of ray species including small-eyed, blonde and undulate rays. As not much is known about them, the Fisheries and Marine Resources Panel has agreed to investigate the species found locally in more detail.

It is conducting a research project in conjunction with ray experts from the Centre of Environment and Fisheries and Aquaculture Scienc​e (Cefas). A number of rays will be professionally tagged with equipment supplied by Cefas in the internationally accepted way.

£6 reward for tagged ray information

A £6 reward is being offered to anyone who reports the vital statistics on any tagged ray. The fish have been tagged with bright yellow circular tags in order that the Fisheries Department can have a better understanding of the biology of the fish and marine resources generally around Jersey.

If you find a tagged ray

Return the tag, together with information about the place and date of capture of the fish and its length, to either the Environment Department in Jersey or to Cefas in Lowestoft, UK.
