Stung!

I got a (hopefully) minor sting while clipping a large barb from an 8 inch BD that ships out in the morning. I got the barb out super fast, did not go deep. I sucked blood fast and for a while from my thumb, then ran under cold water, and repeated. After 5-10 minutes of that I used rubbing alcohol. Now feels kind of like a bee/wasp sting, bit of a burning/stinging feeling. Hopefully not too much swelling tonight.

I shipped the fish from Vancouver to Calgary. I've had many rays thrash around in bags during transit and end up puncturing the shipping bags. Luckily I've never lost a ray in shipping, but I don't like taking the chance. So, I always either clip the barbs of the rays when shipping or else add a piece of plastic tubing around the barbs. This is the same format used by the farms in Asia when they ship rays.

Wow. That’s insane, did it swell up or do you think sucking the blood/ poison out worked?
