Learn about Decline and Restoration of the American Eel

June 2nd, 2009 | Posted by admin

Our friends at the Algonquin to Adirondack Conservation Association just sent along information about a great presentation being held in a few weeks on the decline of the American Eel population.

Eels once made up 50% of the biomass of many bodies of water in our area and represented a major food source for aboriginal peoples. They are now in serious decline from a variety of causes, most notably the effects of hydroelectric dams. They are now listed as a Species at Risk in Canada, and the Ontario Government is developing a Recovery Strategy for them.

To learn more, join A2A and the Gananoque River Waterways Association on Friday, July 10th at 7 p.m. for a presentation titled “The American Eel at the Edge: The Dramatic Decline of Eels in the Upper St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario”. The presenter is John Casselman, a biologist at Queen’s University and recognized as the expert on eel biology in Canada. The event is being held at the Council Chambers, Lansdowne Community Centre, 1 Jessie Street Lansdowne (same building as the library). Refreshments will be served!

For more information and to RSVP (the event is free), call (613) 659-4824.
