Barn-door skate

After peaking in the 1950s, the population of the barndoor skate dramatically declined in the 1970s as a result of overfishing and is now listed as endangered by the World Conservation Union.

The Barn-door skate lives in the demersal, oceanodromous, marine, depth range 0 - 750 m , usually 0 - 150 m environment.

The Barn-door skate is classified as Endangered (EN), considered to be facing a very high risk of extinction in the wild.
