A cartilagenous world ...

CIESM is proud to announce the launch of its Guide of Mediterranean Skates and Rays - the outcome of months of work at our Headquarters. Rays have roamed the world Ocean for over 200 million years, and yet we know little of their ecology, distribution, or migrations. While this digital, interactive Guide does not pretend to be exhaustive, it aims to open this fascinating world to a large number of readers (marine scientists and non-specialists alike). You are welcome to browse through these richly illustrated pages where you will find maps, nursery areas, taxonomic tree, current conservation status plus relevant bibliography.
