Thai Stingray research Maeklong River

Thai Stingray research Maeklong River – 20 02 2015

Another visit from the VRMC from Chulalongkorn saw Fishsiam fishing the Maeklong River in Thailand for Giant freshwater stingrays.
Accompanied by Dr. Nantaika Chansue the team fished in the lower reaches of the Maeklong River.

After fishing for a few hours a gentle take saw the team attached to an unseen Giant freshwater stingray.
The Giant freshwater stingray was easily brought to the surface within five minutes on the heavy duty stingray fishing equipment.

On bringing the stingray to the riverside a full scientific inspection was carried out by the veterinary scientists before the stingray was carefully released back into the tidal river.

The team fished for a further few hours before another Giant freshwater stingray picked up one of the baits.
The fight on this occasion also only lasted a short time and it was not long before another Giant freshwater stingray was brought into the boat.
The Giant freshwater stingray was estimated to weigh 40kg and was quickly examined by the scientists before being released back into the Maeklong River.

No further stingrays were caught in the remaining hours.
Results of the trip can be seen on Thai TV in the coming weeks
