Question: Why is eel unsustainable?

About 90 percent of the eel consumed in the United States is farm-raised. While that sounds nice, it doesnt take in account that young eels are captured from the wild to be raised in farms. These young eels are not allowed to grow up and reproduce, hence the unsustainable part of the fishery.

Why is eel not sustainable?

Eels are on the sustainable seafood advisory list, meaning experts recommend consumers do not partake in them since their populations are under pressure from overfishing.
