I want to be an eel supporter!

That is great! The most important way to help is by signing our petition and sharing it with your family, friends and colleagues. The more people who understand the seriousness of the eels' situation, the more we can do to change it.

Eel-power projects

Supporters are working hard to save the eel. Both organisations behind Power to the Eels are involved in a large number of projects.

We are taking action:
Against illegal fishing in favour of more effective policy and stricter rules.

We are conducting research into the following: 
The illicit eel trade, options for creating a better habitat, and making migration routes easier. Our aim is to share this data to initiate more effective regulations. 

Help is always welcome!

Can I still eat eel?

No, it is better not to. As long as the European eel is listed as 'critically endangered' on the IUCN red list of endangered species, we recommend NEVER eating eel. Fortunately, there are tasty alternatives!

Which fish should I eat instead of eel?

Or check out the VISwijzer from Good Fish to see which species of fish score well!
