Removing Stingray Barb

Has anyone ever removed a stingray barb from a live stingray? Can you break them off or do you have to cut off the tail to remove it?

you can cut the barb off. just be careful. its easier to cut them off the ray than out of your arm. just run the knife underneath the barb and cut towards the head.

Neither. While standing on the tip of the tail, I slide the fillet knife under the barb and cut toward the body but staying just under the skin. When done correctly, it does minimum damage to the ray and he can be released back into the water.
Do not kill a stingray just to get a barb!!!

WARNING: THIS IS AN EXCELLENT WAY TO GET HURT !!!!!
Make sure you are ready to face the consequences of your action.

i break them off every time i land one, if i land one, as close to the tail as possible. i land them with the net and use the net frame to hold the tail down firmly. quick and easy.

Yea you can just grab them with a pair of hook-outs and pull backwards toward the body and they come off.

I've only ever removed one, and I just took a pair of pliers and pulled backward from the fish, came right out. Dang those things are sharp!!

Whatever you do, DO NOT leave it lying on a pier at a public park!
My son will find it and stick it in his cheek! Thank you to the d!ck who left there's on the pier at Bayshore Park in May, the subsequent hospital visit will not soon be forgotten.

Best thing is to just let them be and release them. Breaking off the barb does nothing, because they will grow another one.
