Description:

The common stingray (Dasyatis pastinaca) is a species of stingray in the family Dasyatidae, found in the northeastern Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean and Black Seas. It typically inhabits sandy or muddy habitats in coastal waters shallower than 60 m (200 ft), often burying itself in sediment.

Sand

Notes:

I found and recorded 7 rays in about 4,5 meters in depth and about 200 - 220 meters away from the shore. But probably there were many more. Video: https://youtu.be/bZGAkUJpWko
