The giant guitarfish is found in the tropical waters of the western Indian Ocean from the Red Sea to South Africa. It is a shallow-water species that inhabits marine and estuarine waters. Its body is elongated and resembles that of a shark even though it is a member of the ray family.
This guitarfish is olive green in color dorsally with a white underside. It has a triangular head and a pointed snout. Adults can reach 10 feet in length and weigh around 500 pounds. Its fins and flesh are very popular among many Asian markets.
