Occurrence and use of an estuarine habitat by giant manta ray Manta birostris



Occurrence and use of an estuarine habitat by giant manta ray Manta birostris



Journal of Fish Biology 86(6): 1830-1838



Based on the knowledge of local artisanal fishermen and on direct observations, this study presents evidence that the giant manta ray Manta birostris uses the Paranagu√° estuarine complex in south Brazil, south-western Atlantic Ocean, in a predictable seasonal pattern. Behavioural observations suggest that the estuary can act as a nursery ground for M. birostris during the summer.
