National Geographic Zeb Hogan stingray research Thailand

National Geographic Zeb Hogan stingray research Thailand – 19 03 2016

The third and final day stingray fishing with National Geographic explorer Zeb Hogan and VRMC saw the team making an early start.
It wasn’t long before the first Giant freshwater stingray of the day was landed.
The small Giant freshwater stingray was identified as being a male and was estimated to weigh 25kg.
After blood, toxicology and measurements were taken the fish was then tagged and released.
Another stingray was soon landed of an estimated 45kg, after a thorough examination by Zeb Hogan and the VRMC team the fish was tagged and released.
After a quiet spell, one of the floats burst into life and started moving downstream.
On winding down into the unseen Giant freshwater stingray it was clear this stingray was a slightly larger specimen.
A 45 minute battle followed which saw the team expertly bring the stingray to the waiting net.
On inspection the stingray was observed to be a good sized female with a wingspan of 1.7m’s and an estimated 170kg’s in weight.
The stingray was quickly tagged and examined by Zeb and the scientists before being released back into the river.
