Sexual development and reproductive cycle of the Eyespot skate Atlantoraja cyclophora (Regan, 1903) (Chondrichthyes: Rajidae: Arhynchobatinae), in southeastern Brazil
TLDR
Universidade Estadual Paulista Departamento de Ecologia Campus Rio Claro aims to provide a platform for the development of eco-friendly buildings and technologies for sustainable development.
Size at maturity of Atlantoraja platana (Günther, 1880) (Chondrichthyes: Rajidae: Arhynchobatinae) in the south-west Atlantic Ocean
TLDR
The sexual development of Atlantoraja platana from the south-west Atlantic Ocean was analysed and males were found to mature at 620 mm and females at 715 mm total length.
Taxonomy and morphology of the skate genus Atlantoraja (Rajiformes: Arhynchobatidae)
Abstract The skate genus Atlantoraja is composed of three species (A. castelnaui, A. cyclophora, and A. platana) which differ from the other Riorajini species, Rioraja agassizii, in regards to their
The complete mitochondrial genome of the endangered spotback skate, Atlantoraja castelnaui
TLDR
The complete mitochondrial genome of the endangered spotback skate, Atlantoraja castelnaui, is described, containing 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes and 1 control region.
Reproductive biology of the eyespot skate Atlantoraja cyclophora (Elasmobranchii: Arhynchobatidae) an endemic species of the Southwestern Atlantic Ocean (34ºS - 42ºS)
TLDR
The results obtained suggest that A. cyclophora might undergo an annual reproductive cycle, in coincidence to that reported for this species in Brazilian populations.
Condition analysis of the Brazilian sharpnose shark Rhizoprionodon lalandii: evidence of maternal investment for initial post-natal life.
TLDR
The decline in I H values in juveniles suggests that reserves provisioned by the mother to the neonate liver can be used in the first months of life, and that this small coastal shark species accumulates reserve substances in the liver that will be used during reproduction.
Reproductive biology of the endemic skate Psammobatis lentiginosa in the San Matías Gulf (south-western Atlantic)
TLDR
The species exhibited a continuous reproductive cycle throughout the year, with a peak of egg-case production during autumn that was synchronous with maximum values of the epididymis and uterus indices, suggesting that this area is the main distribution area of P. lentiginosa in the south-west Atlantic.
Phylogenetic conservatism of abiotic niche in sympatric Southwestern Atlantic skates
TLDR
The results recovered Riorajini as a monophyletic group and indicated PNC with bathymetry, distance to shore and concentration of nitrate characterizing the tribe's abiotic niche, but no linear relationship between phylogenetic proximity and niche similarity was clear.
Functionality and Effectiveness of Marine Protected Areas in Southeastern Brazilian Waters for Demersal Elasmobranchs
Ensuring the efficacy of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs) requires that adequate management strategies be implemented according to the MPA’s objectives. Within the scope of species conservation,
Pectoral fin morphology of batoid fishes (Chondrichthyes: Batoidea): Explaining phylogenetic variation with geometric morphometrics
TLDR
This study provides the first evidence that low aspect‐ratio fins are correlated with undulatory‐style locomotion in batoids, whereas high aspect‐Ratio fins is correlated with oscillatory locomotion, and shows that it is phylogeny that determines locomotor style.

Reproductive biology of Atlantoraja cyclophora (Regan 1903) (Elasmobranchii: Rajidae) off southern Brazil
TLDR
In adult females, there was an ovarian resting period at an individual level, though it was not synchronized at a population level, and distribution of egg-bearing females was not related to depth or species' range.
Size composition, monthly condition factor and morphometrics for fishery-dependent samples of Rioraja agassizi (Chondrichthyes: Rajidae), off Santos, Southeast Brazil
TLDR
The entire length range of R. agassizi was observed and mean female length was significantly higher than that of males, and length-width functions were sexually dimorphic.
The reproductive ecology and abundance of Symptevygia bonapavtii endemic to the south‐west Atlantic
TLDR
Logistical ogives gave an estimated L T50 value of 635 mm for female and 650 mm for male Sympterygia bonapartii, indicating that in mature females, the right ovary was larger than the left, which was apparently due to differences in stroma tissue.
Food resource utilization of the skates Rioraja agassizii (Müller & Henle, 1841) and Psammobatis extenta (Garman, 1913) on the continental shelf off Ubatuba, South-eastern Brazil.
TLDR
The results indicated that both species are benthic feeders, preying mainly on Crustacea, especially Amphipoda, Caridea and Brachyura, which seems to be associated with the availability of the prey, whose distribution and abundance are related to the dynamics of the water masses of the region.
Reproductive biology of Psammobatis extenta
TLDR
Evidence suggested a continuous reproductive cycle during the year, with a maximum number of females carrying egg-cases in summer, and the gonadosomatic index in mature males and females was slightly higher during summer, but did not show significant variation over the sampling period.
Length-Weight Relationships, Morphometric Characteristics and Thorniness of Thorny Skate (Raja radiata) from the Northwest Atlantic
TLDR
Dorsal thorniness decreased with increase in skate length and advance toward sexual maturity, with males showing a much greater and earlier loss of thorniness than females.
Growth and maturation of roker Raja clavata L. in the Solway Firth
TLDR
It is suggested that fishing pressure has brought about a reduction in the size at which female fish mature, and Raja clavata appear to mature at 42 and 45 cm disc width respectively.
Disappearance of common skate Raia batis from Irish Sea
Records show that the common skate, Raia batis, has declined in abundance in the Irish Sea since the early years of the twentieth century, and is now very rare. As I report here, it is possible to
Distribution, abundance and morphometry of Atlantoraja cyclophora (Regan, 1903) (Elasmobranchii: Rajidae) in southern Brazil, Southwestern Atlantic
TLDR
Nao houve diferenca no comprimento total medio entre estacoes do ano, mas sim entre profundidades, sendo significantemente maiores nos estratos de 100 a 200 m.
Predicting Extinction Vulnerability in Skates
TLDR
Body size was the only trait that correctly identified the known local extinctions, suggesting that it is more useful than range sizes for identifying potentially vulnerable fishes.
