Ultra-rare flapper skate site discovered

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

More than 100 eggs belonging to the critically endangered flapper skate have been discovered on the rocky seabed off the northwest coast of Scotland.

Conservationists say it is one of the largest egg-laying sites discovered to date, but warn it is vulnerable to trawling and dredging.

Capable of reaching more than 2.5m (8ft) in length, the flapper skate is one of the largest skate species in the world.
