Keep up the good work on behalf of the eel and other the anadramous species as well. You and your brother are true stewards of the resource and it's inspiring to see your dedication to protecting them.
It's easy for us to get focused on gamefish here in this group but you reinforce to me the concept that these species are intricately related and inseparable, to care for the health of all such species is to do what's best for the ones we pursue. Unless there is a healthy population, we need to focus our attention on bringing them to health, and only then do we deserve to indulge.
Please feel free to use the site to raise awareness or recruit volunteers in the days to come if you need help - I would certainly like to assist however I can.
