Private firms could be interested by the eels in the South Pacific

A workshop concerning the tropical eels was organized at Moorea by the CRIOBE and IRCP, with a funding from French Embassy in the Pacific (‘Fond Pacifique’). The seminars and field trips allowed to join together the data on biology and ecology of tropical eels in the Pacific, data from Scientifics, private firms, NGO in order to better know the eel stocks. This better knowledge of fish stock would allow the exploitation of tropical eels by some private firms.
