European eel (anguilla angUilla 2) is a family member Anguillidae, a family of eels (Eelidae), distributed in Europe, Asia and Africa. It is used for reproduction, growth and differentiation in marine habitats as well as freshwater and brackish water areas. Although the lifestyle of a single eel depends on the type of habitat it lives in, it is found all over the world but is most commonly found in oceans and rivers.
The vertical migration behaviour of the Sargasso Sea is no different from that of the American eels (Castonguay and McCleave), which have partly overlapping spawning areas. A. anguilla glass eel, which was taken from a large French estuary, said only 15-19% migrated exclusively with STST, suggesting that active swimming could also play a role.
Experiments with drainage basins showed that the eels exhibit different migratory tendencies and can be divided into two groups, with migrants actively migrating upstream and downstream and non-migrants not particularly inclined to migrate. The European eel belongs to the same panmictic population, but is distributed at a wider latitude than the glass eel. The geographical range of adult European eels includes the Sargasso Sea, the Mediterranean and the Atlantic, as well as the Gulf of Mexico and North America.
European coasts and stocks of glass eels are very diverse, with an average age of about 1.5 years for adult eels and a maximum age of 2 years.
The eels begin their migration back to the Sargasso Sea where they spawn, and at this stage they are called silver eels. This year, the yellow eel undergoes the same migration process as the silver eel, which migrates from its spawning waters in the Atlantic and dies there. The crucial step in this migration is to reach the estuary and swim upstream into freshwater. Glass eels migrate north and cross a series of waterways before finally reaching the brackish waters of an estuary.
At the end of this period, the eel is called the yellow eel, which is then deposited in the mouth for the rest of the year until it dies.
The time that glass eels spend in estuaries before moving into freshwater can last from a few weeks to a year in silver for brackish water dwellers and a few years for freshwater dwellers. It was assumed that they go through an active phase of migration when they accumulate near the river bank. The Waikato River in New Zealand was sampled for the first time in 2012 with a total of 1,000 glass eel samples.
Looking at glass eels, it is possible that they shape the rhythm of the tides and the magnetic flow direction when they enter estuaries, which is an important part of their life cycle. For example, is it possible for an adult eel to recognize the direction and alternate tidal flow it experiences when it descends into an estuary, and is this sufficient information to accurately assess its long-term migration patterns?
If analogous studies on European eels are not available, we refer to closely related eel species. Such cases have been reported, but only the masculinising treatment with 17A methyltestosterone has been described.
For more information, we refer to the introduction of fish as a mechanism of homing and also to sex growth in Angulla. For example, there is no evidence of the use of 17A methyltestosterone in the development of male-to-female sexual relations, but there is evidence of a significant increase in the sexual ratio between male and female eels with the drug.

Upon entering freshwater, glass eels develop into a sequential morphological stage known as eel (yellow eel) before entering freshwater. After the transformation into pigmented young eels (eels), the adult yellow eels begin their journey into fresher waters where they grow into their adult form.

Glass eels migrate to estuaries they have never seen before, where they transform into young eels and begin their migration upstream. The estuary will be the starting point for the oceanic spawning migration, which begins with the full-grown silver. Anguilla anguillas, an endangered species, is one of the largest animals in the kingdom and is most common in tropical and subtropical regions of North America, Europe and Asia.
