This project remains a work in progress.
Neil documented the work being undertaken by WWT (the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust) and its research partners from Bournemouth University to capture and tag eels in order to understand how they move around the wetlands bordering the River Severn in Gloucestershire, England.
The European eel is the most trafficked animal in the world and it is classified by the IUCN as critically endangered. Despite this, eels are still caught and sold widely for consumption. Jellied eels is a traditional way of preparing and serving eels and this dish is still available on the shelves of British supermarkets.
