New Species of Stingray

Date: 30/03/2010

Scientists from CSIRO and the Western Australian Government discovered a new species of stingray (Neotrygon sp.) in Australia’s Ningaloo Marine Park. A tremendous amount of research in this area has already been undertaken, culminating in the release of CSIRO’s cornerstone publication Sharks and Rays of Australia (2009)’ said Senator Carr. CSIRO’s work was conducted as part of the Western Australian Marine Science Institution – a collaboration of federal, state, industry and academic organisations.
