The Atlantic eel has long been a mystery to mankind, with all kinds of myths and legends arising from its unusual life cycle. It was not until the nineteenth century that scientists began to understand but there are still aspects of the eel’s life history that remain uncertain.
This book is the work of Roger Castle, who had a lifelong passion for the eel and knew it intimately through his association with Poole Harbour in Dorset and its environs. It is based on the thesis he did at Loughborough College and reveals how science gradually became aware of the eel’s migrations from ocean to river and back again to breed in the Sargasso Sea and the metamorphosis it undergoes.
