The broad skate (Amblyraja badia) is a deep-water skate found in the central and northern Pacific ocean. It is the deepest known-occurring skate species, having been observed at 3,167 meters depth. It is known to grow to be just under a meter in length. Both the top and bottom surfaces are dark gray to brown, with darker patches in places, although the snout and gills are whitish. The snout is also well defined and sharp, and it has scapular thorns on each shoulder arranged in triangular groupings. It has never been the object of a commercial fishery.
