Stingray Shoals is located in the West Mariana Ridge, approximately 275 km west of the island of Uracas. The ridge is a remnant volcanic arc, and the morphology of Stingray Shoals is a typical the other seamounts there. It is a steep-sided pinnacle with a well-developed continuous reef on the small summit (approximately 300 m x 500 m). Despite its remote location at the northern edge of the Ridge, evidence of fishing activity is present, including anchors and long-line gear on the reef.
