SMOOTH RAY BEHAVIOUR NEAR A FISH CLEANING STATION

I had the pleasure of interviewing Joni Pini-Fitzsimmons, who is also known as @MotherOfRays – a fantastic Twitter handle!!! We discussed a recent paper that she published on the feeding behaviour of smooth rays around a recreational fishing cleaning area. 

The fishers clean their fish and discard the fish “waste” into the ocean where the rays feed; however, this feeding behaviour could be detrimental to the overall survival of the rays, especially if the cleaning station disappears leaving the rays to fend for themselves.
