Ray Breeding

Rays are inquisitive relatives of the shark. Our Ray Breeding programme will help you learn more about these incredible creatures and spot the endangered species.

Did you know?

Since 2009, fishermen have been prohibited from taking Undulate Rays from EU waters.

 

We breed two different species at SEA LIFE London. Southern Stingrays are common around the tropical and subtropical waters of the southern Atlantic Ocean, and they naturally breed on their own in our aquarium.

 

Undulate Rays are an endangered species found in muddy or sandy bottoms of UK shores, but they are under threat from over-fishing. SEA LIFE is proud to lead a breeding program that focuses on the genetic health and sustainability of the captive population which in turn will help with a steady increase of the wild population. 

 

Fun Fact!

Rays have flat bodies that help them hide in the sand!
