Husbandry


Himantura undulata Bleeker, 1852

Himantura undulata is a stingray, widespread in the Indo-Pacific you can find him near the coast on the continental shelf , mostly on soft and sandy soil. They are found from the Bay of Bengal north to the Ryukyu Islands, New Guinea and the Torres Strait, south to the coast of northern Australia.

Himantura undulata has a diamond-shaped body which can reach a size (diameter) of about 1,5 m. From head to tail, he often reaches a total length of approximately 4.5 m. On top of tail he has, like all Stingrays a venomous spine, but no dorsal fin. Body and tail of adult specimens are yellowish or brownish with a leopard similar pattern. Himantura undulata is ovoviviparous.

This species is captured by demersal tangle net, bottom trawl and, to a lesser extent, longline fisheries in Indonesia and across large parts of its range. Its inshore distribution overlaps with coastal artisanal and commercial fisheries throughout large areas of the Indian and western Pacific Oceans.
