There was a commercial eel farm down on the North or South River back in the late 70's. I think it was in Hanover or Marshfeild? They had large holding tanks and pumped river water through the tanks. If I remember right the market was Italy at that time not Japan. Anyone know if this farm still exists? It looked like a slick operation but not sure if it had an impact on the population of eels on the river system.
What a wonderful creature the N. American eel is.
