About the book >.>.> The cel is a fascinating subject. Many people still regard the eel solely as a mysterious undesirable snake-like creature lurking on the bottom of rivers; and do not realise that the national and international cel market is annually worth considerably more than ?75m. This trade breaks down into five distinct areas namely for elvers (baby eels); fingerling eels; captured wild eels; cultured eels and fresh and processed eels. Europe and the Far East annually produce 20000-25000 tons of eels each. The latter is the main area for eel culture; and the former for wild eel capture. The economic importance of eels to a number of countries in the world is undisputed and more and more individuals and organisa tions are showing an interest in different aspects of this market. However in spite of the size and value of the eel market and the growing importance of wild eel capture and eel culture so far little comprehensive information has been published. Previous books have tended to describe only one or two aspects relating to eels without bringing them all together under one cover.
