It is sad indeed. The population in Lake Ontario which makes the migration from the Sargasso Sea up the St Lawrence over a period of years is all but extinct, there has been an almost complete recruitment failure. Absurdly, the eel fisheries continues to take these eels in the St. Lawrence. It is sad to see what has happened to so many fish populations over the past 20 years.
