This article is about the current version of DF.
A medium-sized, flat, bottom-dwelling fish.

Common skates are cartilaginous fish that can be found in temperate and tropical oceans. Nearly twice the size of a dwarf, they provide a good amount of returns if butchered. As fully-sized creatures, they can't be fished by fisherdwarves, but can be caught with a drowning chamber. An infant common skate is called a common skate pup.

Being cartilaginous, common skates won't give bones if butchered (though they'll still provide a skull).

Some dwarves like common skates for their flat bodies.

Admired for their flat bodies.
