The event will be a day of diverse talks focused on efforts to better understand and conserve the critically endangered European eel. A list of the speakers are below. Talks will focus on the incredible journey of the eel from the Sargasso sea to Europe, the threats facing eels and the work people across the world are doing to preserve eel species. This is a unique opportunity to be involved in the first eel conference in Scotland and shape the conservation of the species. Policy makers and leading professionals will be brought together to discuss the future of eel conservation. You could have your say!

This mysterious animal still hold many secrets and collective efforts are helping to unveil some of the answers. From the enthusiasm generated by this event we aim to increase the efforts to conserve and understand eels in Scotland as well as diversify funding opportunities for these projects.
