Science-led conservation of the European eel underpins all of SEG’s workto support the Eel Regulation EC 1100/2007 for the ‘protection and sustainable use of the stock of European eel’. Our work to conserve the European eel includes: (1) Raising public awareness on the need to safeguard and restore habitats for eel, (2) Developing and running the SEG Standard ensuring responsibility and traceability from source to market, (3) Facilitation and management of projects aiming to improve eel populations, (4) Advising politics, conservation and trade authorities in order to gain global protection and future sustainable use of the species.
