"The freshwater eels, the Anguillids, have increasingly become the focus of attention..."

Eel Health: Major eel diseases in Europe, the past 30 years; Eel toxicology; Parasite assemblages of European eels in Irish freshwater habitats; Silver service, a standard protocol for eel health examinations. Aquaculture: Captive breeding of the European eel, Italian review; European eel, an integrated approach to establish eel hatchery technology in Denmark.
