There is no basis in the current or previous ICES advice for the listing of undulate ray as a prohibited species. Therefore it should not appear on the prohibited species list in either the Celtic Seas or the Biscay/Iberia eco-region fisheries legislation. Alternative measures proposed by ICES are given separately for the English Channel, SW Ireland, and Biscay/Iberia. In view of the poor knowledge and patch distribution of these populations, ICES recommends a precautionary approach to the exploitation of these populations of undulate ray. Therefore there should be no target fishing unless information is available to show that such fisheries are sustainable.
