Eel Evaluation Roadmap NGO submission

In response to the evaluation of the eel evaluation roadmap, we have produced a joint NGO paper providing feedback on the effectiveness and implementation of the EU Eel Regulation. In 2007 the EU agreed to establish measures for the recovery of the eel stock. This legislation has yet to bring about marked improvements in the state of the eel stock. It is our hope that through implementation of urgent measures and better management and protection in the future, we can enable long-term recovery and sustainable exploitation of European eel, but we note that we are a very long way from there today.
