about this item

Biologists study the Anguilla genus of freshwater eels, the 16 species of which are distributed throughout tropical, subtropical, and temperate zones everywhere except the South Atlantic and eastern Pacific coasts. They all make oceanic migrations from a few hundred to a few thousand kilometers to spawn in remote tropical seas, so that ocean current will transport the larvae back to their nursery ground in freshwater or coastal areas. Among the topics are the evolutionary genomics of North Atlantic eels, spawning ground of the Japanese eel Anguilla japonica, juvenile eels: upstream migration and habitat use, adaptation to varying salinity, and the American eel Anguilla rostrata stock status in Canada and the US.
