    Abstract

    Three numbers of Giant Manta ray, Manta birostris locally known as “Aana Thirandi” measuring 220, 291 and 285 cm in standard length and weighing 680, 1080 and 1050 kg respectively were landed at Cochin Fisheries Harbour on 27th March, 2015 (Fig.1). The rays though landed by deep sea trawler, were caught by mechanized gill net boat operated at depth of 200 m off Kochi. Due to the big size of the rays caught, the gill net fishermen had transferred them to a deep sea trawler which operated nearby.
