“Mantas feed on plankton, fish larvae and the like, filtered from the water passing through their gills as they swim. They catch small prey organisms on flat horizontal plates of russet-colored spongy tissue spanning spaces between the manta’s gill bars.”
Basically, as the manta ray swims, it filters water through its gills, and any plankton or fish larvea in the way get cought on a spongy tissue between the gills and are then eaten
