Description 
Summary

Yellow eel stock monitoring is integral to gaining an understanding of the current status of local stocks and for informing models of escapement. In addition, such monitoring provides a means of evaluating post-management changes and forecasting the effects of these changes on silver eel escapement. Data includes the following: Annual indices of Catch per Unit Effort (CPUE), Stock Structure, PIT tag, Eel size, Silvering rate, Age and Parasite status. The Burrishoole lakes Feeagh and Bunaveela have been incorporated into the National Eel Survey in 2009-2011.
