People have fished and farmed eels for hundreds of years, but we have little known about eels for most of that time. Even today the American eel’s complex life history is not completely understood.

During its lifetime, the eel undergoes several physical phases as well as changes in where it lives. American eel found along the eastern coast of Mexico are from the same population as eel found in the St.

The Atlantic States Marine Fisheries Commission’s American Eel Management Board (Board) initiated the development of Addendum III in August in response to the Benchmark American Eel Stock Assessment, which found the American eel population in U.S. waters is depleted. The assessment found the stock is at or near historically low levels.American eel larvae are then carried by currents to areas along the Atlantic coast.

As the larvae drift, they change into a more eel-like form. Once they develop into the glass eel or elver stage at 2 inches, the eels move into freshwater rivers and streams. Here they remain for several years as they grow into mature eels.Some estimates suggest American Eel stocks along the eastern coast of North America have declined dramatically in the last several decades (Busch et al.

).
