Longfin Eel

Listen to this fotobabble from Claudia and Heather about the eel we released on the beach at Taumutu.


  1. Great listening skills on your field trip, girls. Isn't it amazing that she will have to swim as far as Tonga to lay her eggs?! I wonder if any of her babies will come back to Lake Ellesmere or if they will find another place to live??

  2. This was an interesting report, and I learnt some things about eels that I hadn't known. Why did the eel have to be released to the sea - could it not get there by itself? Do lots of eels need this help?

    Keep up the great reporting!
