The remainder of sampled landings was comprised of thorny skate (1.
Reflecting its higher abundance in the GOM, thorny skate was the next largest component of GOM landings, ranging from 0.
09 kg per tow, and thorny skate biomass averaged 0.
Thorny skate landings were much lower than winter skate but were still comparatively high in 2005 (404 t) and 2006 (409 t), given their prohibited status.

Development, occurrence and characteristics of egg capsules of the thorny skate, Raja radiata, in the Northwest Atlantic.
The thorny skate (Amblyraja radiata) is a member of the family Rajidae (Robins and Ray, 1986; Collette and Klein-MacPhee, 2002).
When these characteristics are coupled with the practice of selective removal of large individuals, the thorny skate population in the Gulf of Maine may be highly susceptible to over-exploitation by commercial fisheries (Brander 1981; Hoenig and Gruber, 1990; Casey and Myers 1998; Dulvy et al.
For this reason, we focused our efforts on these specific stages in the thorny skate.

The thorny skate (Amblyraja radiata) is a cosmopolitan species found on both sides of the Atlantic ocean from Greenland and Iceland to the English Channel in the eastern Atlantic (Compagno et al.
