The American Eel

The American eel was once the dominant fish species in the Ottawa River.  In the past 40 years, it has declined by 90% and, along with it, so has the appreciation for its rich historical, ecological and cultural values within the watershed. In response, the federal government is considering listing American eel as a species at risk. Ottawa Riverkeeper and its allies will not accept the continued decimation of this iconic species. We have already started  a movement to ensure that eel has a future in the Ottawa River.  Find all the details here!
