It’s been around since the Atlantic Ocean was formed. But nowadays, the eel, one of natures most intriguing creatures, is struggling for life due to multiple threats. The word is that fishermen and the people who eat eel are responsible for its troubles. But what if there is another explanation?
Swedish Public Service Television (SVT) current affairs program “Uppdrag granskning” (“Mission Investigate”) disclosed on 20th of October 2021 how eels over decades have been killed in massive numbers in hydro power plants, without much action taken by energy companies or responsible authorities.
