I'd be curious to learn what the domestic consumption of eels is with the popularity of live eels as bait in the atlantic and with the recent explosion of popularity of sushi, much of which is 'unagi' around the country. Bill, did the book include domestic figures by any chance? Also, since the Sargasso sea in in the Atlantic, are the eels consumed in pacific markets of another breed or do they swim through the Panama Canal? Fascinating stuff.
