For centuries, it has not been possible to fathom the mystery of the eel’s reproductive cycle; where and how does the eel reproduce? Now that the eel is in danger of extinction much effort is being made to unravel the mystery, including an international scientific expedition to the Sargasso Sea, the eel’s suspected birthplace. And in a laboratory in the Netherlands, experiments are under way to breed eels. With the seemingly imminent exploration of the reproductive secret, we will finally secure our consumption of the eel. Or is our domination of nature further threatening the primal fish?
