    Been told by a few immigrant vineyard workers they eat all of the ray. Suspect the body would get boiled into a kind of soup.

    They also hang them (along with any doggies and red cod they catch) out to dry in the sun and I been told everywhere around their accommodation smells putrid from the partly decomposing fish. Suspect the rotten flesh adds flavor.

    Heaps in the Sounds over summer but probably to far north for you.

    They seem to be fairly common everywhere, caught a few in the Sounds during winter. Seen a lot caught in Marfells bay over winter, Caught a massive one just past Kekerengu during autumn but that was the only one in that section over many trips. Seem to be the main catch at the Kaikoura Surfcasting competition each summer, We also caught about 30 between 5 of us when we held a small forum contest at Conway. So they seem to be everywhere in my experience.
