Fishing for Conservation Solutions: Protecting Manta Rays from Our Seafood System

Manta and devil rays are a group of charismatic and biologically fascinating ocean icons. Unfortunately, they also face enormous threats from wildlife trafficking, plastic pollution, and accidental entanglement in fishing gear. A unique collaboration of scientists, fisheries managers, and industrial tuna fisheries is out to document and understand this accidental manta and devil ray “bycatch,” and to develop conservation solutions to save these threatened ocean giants.

Join Melissa Cronin, UC Santa Cruz, as she discusses her work on these incredible creatures, and explains how consumers can play a role in protecting these iconic species.
