Accelerating the recovery of the European Eel

Illegal Trafficking

Illegal fishing (IUU) and export in European eels from Europe to Asia threatens the species survival and sustainable management. In collaboration with international partners from Science, Conservation and Industry, SEG monitors and analyses the glass eel trade market and collects evidences applying wildlife forensics (e.g. genetics, otolith microchemistry). Results support authorities and enforcements in counteracting illegal fishing and trade activity.
