Some designs of spear head permit capture of the eel by gripping it or holding it down without doing much damage, but spearing often wounds or kills the eel and detracts from its marketability. Force was estimated by taking the time derivative of I vort Birch and Dickinson, Requirements of nutrients and optimum energy-protein ratio in the diet for Monopterus albus. The amount of gelatine solution needed depends on the condition of the eels and their natural ability to gel; again experience is necessary to get the recipe right. Indeed, the severe decline of Japanese Eel in freshwater habitats in Taiwan may be a result of overfishing of glass eels for farming and degradation of suitable growth habitat.

Kinematics of pectoral fin propulsion in Cymatogaster aggregata. Early indications suggest that there is little recruitment of wild eels to the Sea of Japan coastal localities such as the Hayase River system and that therefore most of the eels present in these areas are stocked eels. These catches include all life stages, except the oceanic larval stage FAO By the time they reach the coast of North America, they are cm in length and have changed into the next life stage in which they are called glass eels, so named because they are completely transparent.

Impulse generated at the tail tip was also estimated from the first moment of vorticity Birch and Dickinson, , averaged over half a tail beat: Biochemical, nutrition and microbiological quality of fresh and smoked mud eel fish Monopterus albus - a comparative study. Yellow eels can be caught by means of baited traps, fyke nets, baited long lines, spears or shore seines. The bottom of the box has 50mm upstands at either end inside, so that in effect there are four layers of eels and a layer of ice in each box.
