We plead with DEFRA, the UK government and the European Union to place a precautionary immediate closure on the commercial export of internationally-endangered(Red-listed) European eel juveniles taken from their home rivers. We urge them to do this in order to stop eels becoming extinct from our rivers.

    A lot of effort has gone into cleaning up the River Don in South Yorkshire, eels used to be common before industrialisation, this drastically reduces the chances of them ever returning!

    To target vulnerable young creatures for food is unethical and unsustainable
