Eel Trek Project – “European eel migration- the final act”


As part of the celebration of World Oceans Day, Expolab – Ciência Viva Science Center, in collaboration with the Azorean Biodiversity Group (ABG) of the Centre for Ecology, Evolution and Environmental Changes (cE3c) of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Lisbon, will promote a talk about the Eel Trek project – “European eel migration- the final act”.

This project was funded by the Ocean Conservation FUND (Oceanário de Lisboa and Oceano Azul Foundation) and is coordinated by José Manuel Azevedo, professor at the University of the Azores and investigator at ABG/cE3c. It aims to study the migration of the European eel (Anguilla anguilla), classified as "Critically Endangered", as well as to understand the importance of the Azores in its life cycle.
