Have you any skate photos ?

There are now several projects underway into the elasmobranchs in Scottish Waters. 

For one of these, David Cooper, a PhD student of Glasgow University, is looking into the colouration and patterns on common skate, and whether there are spatial differences, or if sub-species can be determined through colourations.

In order to do this, David is looking to build a catalogue of aerial photographs of common skate combined with details of the location where caught, sex, weight/length/wingspan, tag numbers (if recorded for the picture).

If anyone has aerial photos of common skate along with the details above or at a minimum the location and sex, could these please be forward them to David.Cooper.2006@live.rhul.ac.uk.

The photos can also be sent by post :

**PLEASE NOTE** Remember to include your name and contact number to the email or postal entry, as each submission will be entered into a draw (to be taken at the end of January). 

David has arranged for the winner to receive £100 in gift vouchers for a local angling shop.

If you require any further details, David can be contacted on the email address above.

On behalf of David, a big thank you in advance!
