Ok, let's go. Casliber (talk · contribs) 15:42, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

found in the coastal waters of the western Atlantic Ocean from the North Sea to South Africa - sounds like it refers to the family and not the ray as written. Maybe add "that is" in between two clauses for flow.
Aargh - trying to read through it, actually I think that made it worse - I think scans best without any comma at all and original wording. Anyway, all looks good.
The paired electric organs of the marbled electric ray are capable of producing 70–80 volts of electricity. - I'd move this sentence to adjoin the other material on electricity in the lead. It looks odd being mentioned in two different bits
In the Distribution and habitat section, when you say "northern UK" I presume it means "Scotland" (?) - I think if it is Scotland then saying so might be more accessible for readers.
I'd link "physiological"
I'd mention in the lead that it uses electricity for hunting
The lead does mention it (?)
ack. sorry, my bad, must have missed it first read through. Casliber (talk · contribs) 02:04, 14 May 2011 (UTC)
