Spotlight: American Eel
Ministry of Natural Resources, Ontario
In 2010, the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources published a Recovery Strategy for the American Eel (Anguilla rostrata). The once-abundant species has been extirpated from many parts of its Ontario range and is in serious decline where it still exists. It is listed as endangered under Ontario's Endangered Species Act, 2007. Eels are important competitors and predators and function as an integral component in Ontario fish communities. They are an important indicator of diversity, adding stability and resilience to the fish community. Their decline has eroded connections among terrestrial, river, estuary and marine ecosystems.
