    The Longtail Butterfly Ray (Gymnura poecilura) is a medium-sized (to at least 104 cm disc width) coastal ray that is widespread in the Indian and Northwestern Pacific Oceans from the Red Sea and Arabian/Persian Gulf to southern Japan. It is demersal in on the continental shelf at depths of 0–75 m. Its meat is considered to be of good quality and is consumed locally and traded internationally. There is a long history of overfishing of inshore populations and fishing pressure remains high, and may be rising, across the species’ entire range.
