Fish On Friday


This 5,000-pound Manta Ray was caught in 1933, about 7 miles off the coast of Brielle, New Jersey.  It got tangled in the anchor line and almost sunk the boat. The baby in the Captain's hand was born after the ray was landed with the help of the Coast Guard. Manta Ray's are very slow reproducers, only producing one or two pups every 1-5 years in the wild.
