 This  stingray  was  hooked  by  the  Bosun  on  his  fishing  line  on  my  ship.
 The  feller  weoghed  a  good  12  -  15  kilos  and  was  about  30  inches  across.
 We  normally  never  catch  anything  like  this  though  we  have  caught  sharks  on  our  fishing  lines.
 
 Must  have  been  a  fluke  catch.

 There  was  only  one  guy  on  board  who  knew  how  to  cook  the  stingray  -  my  3rd  Assistant  Engineer  a  Fillipino.
 
 By  the  time  they  cut  off  the  uneatable  portions  the  edible  remains  had  dwindled  down  considerably.  Anyway  the  Stingray  was  turned  into  a  steak,  which  I  did  not  relish  all  that  much.
 
 It  was  really  tough  cutting  out  the  top  brown  skin  and  that  was  the  most  difficult  part.
 
 No  stingray  for  me  anymore.

 Hello
 
 Madan,
 
 Your  picture  of  the  stingray  brings  back  memories.
 We  accidentally  caught  one  8  yrs  back  in  Mangalore  fishing  along  the  shore  behind  my  house.
 
 It  was  bigger  than  the  one  you  have  photographed.
 
 It  got  entangled  in  our  fishing  net  and  we  could  not  let  it  go.
 
 Finally  we  just  wrapped  the  net  around  it  and  carried  it  home,  which  was  fortunately  just  a  few  steps  away.  It  was  very  heavy  and  full  of  fight.
 It  took  3  able  bodied  men  to  carry  it  home.  It  was  the  end  of  that  nights  fishing.  
 
 It  was  close  to  midnight  so  we  just  left  it  in  the  bathroom  outside  the  house.
 
 My  brother  got  whacked  on  the  leg  with  the  tail,  when  he  ventured  in  the  morning  to  confirm  if  it  was  dead.
 
 Finally  we  got  a  regular  fisherman,  who  stays  nearby  to  come  and  carry  it  away.  
 These  creatures  are  dried  and  preserved  in  salt  in  my  part  of  town.  They  make  good  food  during  the  non-  fishing  season.
 
 I  have  eaten  them  fresh  and  salted  dry.  They  are  very  tasty.  And  not  to  mention  the  nutritional  value.  It  all  depends  on  how  good  you  are  at  cooking  it.
 
 Thanks  for  the  photograph.  I  am  going  to  take  it  home  and  show  my  dad.
 He  was  one  of  the  porters.
 
 That  day  we  were  not  able  to  photograph  it  .  No  digital  camera  then  and  no  roll  to  find,  at  that  time  of  the  day  in  the  village.
 
 Even  to  this  day  that  catch  is  mentioned  over  a  few  drinks.  We  were  the  only  guys  who  had  caught  a  sting  ray  by  throwing  a    net  from  the  shore.
 
 Pure  fluke.
 
 Thanks
 
 Niranjan

 Hmmm
 
 What  a  world  of  irony.  I  expected  people  to  talk  about  keeping  sting  rays  in  their  tank,  and  here  we  have    bunch  of  people  having  exotic  sporting  /  career  and  eating  habits.
 
 Madan,  i  have  seen  sting  rays  being  sold  in  fish  markets.  But  i  have  not  tried  it.  There's  a  place  called  Besant  Nager  in  Chennai,  this  is  a  porsche  locality,  but  a  slum  next  to  it  used  to  sell  fermented  rice  porridge  and  offer  something  called  "natuvankilly"  as  an  accompanying  snack.  I  think  its  close  to  a  sting  ray.....

 Sting  Ray  is  a  common  food  fish  in  most  of  the  coastal  areas  of  our  country.
   
 The  difficult  part  is  removing  the  thick  skin.
 
 It  is  served  as  a  hot  and  spicy  delicious  delicacy  in  all  the  arrack  and  country  liquor  dens  in  my  home  town  'Mangalore'.
 
   In  my  mother  tongue  Konkani  its  called  'Wagale'  and  in  the  local  language  Tulu  it  is  called  'Torake'.
 
 Also  called  the  'Manal  thirukai'  in  Tamil  and  'Puli  tenke'  in  Telugu.

 i  think  its  called  "therandi"  in  malayalam.  see  them  pretty  much  every  time  you  go  to  the  fish  markets  in  ekm.  never  got  to  eat  them  because  my  dad  has  this  theory  that  flat  fish  are  no  good.
 
 arent  these  fellows  elasmobranches?  i  bet  they  taste  salty  like  shark  meat.
