Abstract

This study presents evidence of the decline in European eel abundance in a transitional water body in the Northern Ireland from 1967–2013. The available historical data is from an important period, representative of the baseline abundance of eels in a transitional water body before recruitment collapse. The results from this study indicate the current eel population in the Foyle estuary is 3.38% of historical levels.
