The feasibility of establishing a commercial eel (Anguilla rostrata Le Sueur) fishery on the West coast of Newfoundland is determined and recommendations submitted. Fishing techniques are evaluated and holding and transporting procedures for live eels are described. The largest concentrations of eels were found in brackish water areas. Highly significant differences in fat content and total mercury were found between broad-nosed and sharp-nosed eels. Whether the differences between these two types are genetically or environmentally determined is discussed. Analysis of variance of fat content between five colour types of eels resulted in a significant F value. Bronze eels were found to have a significantly higher fat content than all other colour types. A method of handling, freezing and storing frozen eels designed to achieve and maintain a high quality frozen product, is described. A smoking technique is described that produces a smoked eel product acceptable to most European tastes
