Swedish eels recovering

This article was originally published in Foodnews

SINCE Sweden introduced a national management plan for eels in 2007, mortality of the species has fallen by 30%, the Swedish Board of Fisheries claims. Millions of eels migrated up Sweden's Göta Älv river in the 1950s, but only 100 were recorded in 2008, and scientists have found no glass eels (juveniles) at all in the Skagerrak and the Kattegat for the past three years. Other EU countries have since introduced eel plans and these will be reviewed in 2012, along with the controversial issue of whether restocking can play an efficient role in the eel's recovery.
