Looking for a stingray? Not sure who to buy from?

Tired of buying unhealthy, malnourished stingrays??? Having trouble getting them to eat??? 

That will never happen with fish from us! You will get nothing but fat healthy stingrays that are eager to eat right out of the box!!

Center for Stingray Biology is the leading freshwater stingray breeder / importer / exporter in the USA. Feel free to check out our YouTube channel (Stingray Biology) to learn more about keeping stingrays and get to know who you are buying from.

We are the #1 trusted source for freshwater stingrays in the USA.


We ship via UPS next day service, Monday thru Thursday.

It takes 24 to 48 hours after receiving your order before we ship. We need to prepare your fish for shipping which requires that we stop feeding the fish for minimum 24 hours before shipping.


UPS delays , airlines missed the flight, lost package??? No Problem. You are covered so long as delays on receiving the package did not occur from your fault, We got you! If the fish arrives DOA, we will send you a similar replacement fish.

It's that simple!


"A couple weeks back I received my first stingrays from stingray biology. Very high quality pair of pure black diamonds and I couldn't be happier. Came in fat and healthy, and are very aggressive eaters. Excellent service as well as quality. Kevin worked with me for weeks and held these rays for me until their  tank was ready for them. Very helpful about answering all the questions about the rays he sold me and breeding questions with my own rays at home. I will for sure be doing business with him in the future."  Joseph F  -  June 12, 2019

"Kevin is the real deal for rays. No one else I talked to has more experience for keeping and breeding stingrays. He was very helpful with all my questions and sold me a beautiful adult male to breed with my female. I can't wait to get one of his albino hybrids when I have the room. Thx again Kevin!"  Art J  -  June 13, 2019

"Amazing customer service from Kevin and Tim. Got my platinum red tail cat from them and I can assure you they offer the highest quality animals in the industry. If you aren't getting your stuff from them, you're missing out. They can source the absolute rarest and highest quality animals in the world. 10/10 recommend them. I'm already prepared to drop $30k with them on a future order. Total confidence in dealing with them."  Scott M  -  June 18, 2019

"Had an awesome experience working with Kevin Wai. What an excellent facility they have and how cool to be able to see it before hand on Youtube before hand and that's what got me wanting to work with Kevin and I look forward to working with him again in the future! Got a gorgeous stingray from him today shes happy in her new home. My ray showed up to my door very healthy and not even stressed. Would recommend them to anyone wanting a freshwater ray. Thanks again Kevin!"  Mike G  -  July 9, 2019

"I love this place. I ordered a hybrid stingray. It is so healthy and adorable. If I get another stingray, I'm coming back to you."  Morgan E  -  October 8, 2019

"I ordered male pearl stingray from Kevin and the experience was the best. Kevin is very knowledgeable and knows what he is talking about. He was able to show me pictures of available stingrays and guide me to which one will suit me best. He is a professional and humble individual who shows he cares about his stingrays and the homes they go to. I ordered my stingrays with overnight shipping and UPS delayed the order by one whole day (NOT KEVINS FAULT AT ALL). When I received the pearl stingray the following day after the delay he was in great shape and health. Very active and looked great. From my experience of buying this stingray from Kevin and being a first time stingray owner, I can assure you that I will DEF ORDER from stingray biology again with confidence. The quality of the stingrays are priceless, and will not disappoint when they arrive to your home. Thank You so much Kevin!" Rafael P  -  Dec 17, 2019
