The Northeast skate complex fishery consists of seven species, the primary targets being Winter and Little skates. Winter skates are harvested for their wings for human consumption and little skates are harvested as bait for lobster and other fisheries.
Skates & Rays are a bottom dwelling fish related to the shark family that dwell from inshore to offshore waters on the edge of the continental shelf.
Skate is mostly harvested incidentally in trawl and gillnet fisheries targeting groundfish, monkfish, and sometimes scallops. Most of the bait fishery occurs in New England waters but they are caught year round from anywhere between Maine and North Carolina.
