Pelagic Fish Pictures

The tail of the Pelagic Stingray, which folds underneath, can be up to twice the length of the disc and has a very thick muscular base that tapers to the origin of the serrated spine and then becomes very thin and long. The tail is without a dorsal ridge but has a fleshy ventral ridge from its origin to the base of the spine. The Pelagic Stingray's tail has one or more very venomous spines located one-third of the way down the tail, utilized for defense. The Pelagic Stingray has a gestation period of 2 to 4 months with females giving birth to four to nine adult-like juveniles that measure 6 to 10 inches in width.

The Pelagic is a global nomad and member of the Dasyatidae Family and Pteroplatytrygon Genus which includes the Stingrays. Globally there are a total of 70 known species of stingrays in 6 genera. The Pelagic Stingray is the only member of the Pteroplatytrygon Genus and is found in all global waters between latitudes 50 degrees north and 50 degrees south. Most species of this family are bottom-dwellers that specialize in feeding on buried mollusks and crustaceans.

This fish species is easily confused with two other stingrays found in Mexican fishing waters: the Longtail Stingray, Dasyatis longa (central row of blunt thorns on the back; long slender tail that is greater than twice the length of the disc); and the Whiptail or Diamond Stingray, Dasyatis dipterura (tail equal to the length of the flat disk). The Pelagic Stingray reaches a maximum size of 31.5 inches wide, 63 inches in total length, and about 100 pounds in weight. The females are larger than the males. Unlike most stingrays, Pelagic Stingrays are oceanic swimmers found in the first 330 feet of the water column. It has a broad distribution in Mexican coastal fishing waters, including around the oceanic islands, but they appears to be absent from the Sea of Cortez.

Actually your notions about frozen fish may be

While *truly* fresh fish is superior to frozen for texture in many cases, what passes as "fresh" is often not really that fresh.
If you ever had the kinds of pelagic fish you describe within 30-60 minutes of being caught, you would be amazed at how un-fishy they are, especially tuna.
When fish is fileted and flash frozen at sea in that same time frame, it will most likely have less of a fishy flavor than the same fish that stays unfrozen for even a few hours trip to market, which is enough time to develop a fishy enough taste to put off someone who is sensitive to it.
