Accelerating the recovery of the European Eel

Press Invitation: “The illegal Trafficking of Eels to Asia is Europe’s own Ivory Trade”

The Sustainable Eel Group (SEG) has made an extensive study into the last 6 months of trade in
glass eels and has identified a vast gap between the legitimate sales within Europe and what has
been declared caught.

The illegal traffic of glass eels is one of the main topics at the international eel conference, taking
place at Fishmongers Hall, May 31 in London. Key note speakers:

  •  Ricardo Serrao Santos, MEP for the Azores and Commissioner for the Sargasso Sea
    Commission.
  • Eel scientist Doctor Willem Dekker will present international steering models for
    governing of the eel across Europe.
  • Alex Koelewijn, chairman of the SEG-industry board will reveal how the European
    industry is working toward fully transparency.
