A short resume from an article by Fernando Reis, SEI's executive director, published the 3rd August 2018 on "EL LIBRITO DEL SUR" in Argentina:
The Blotched Sandskate is a small skate, autochthonous species of the some characteristics sand bottoms on the Atlantic coasts of South America, that has a dorsal skin from sand beige to light brownish, with tiny darker spots on a rounded disc-shaped body.
On this article, Fernando Reis writes about the reasons for a changing on some menus of the Eastern South American people.
This is one of the situations that results when juveniles of a certain species begins to be fished continuously, year after year, in certain habitats. Without being able to grow up to its reproductive sexual maturation age, a species inevitably ends by being extinguished locally or even globally.
What happens in nature then, is very different from what happens in fisheries. The fishing industries start to target “new” species which previously were of non-commercial interest that they introduce into the market as a new product. A species of fish that before use to survived more or less unharmed, usually discarded when bycathed on bottom trawling of the first species. This is clearly the case of the Blotched Sandskate.
