Declining European eel ( Anguilla anguilla) recruitment has focused attention on conservation of potential spawners leaving continental waters. Fecundity of wild, seaward-migrating silver-phase eels was shown to be size-related and higher than previously reported from artificial maturation experiments. Reliable information on fecundity is essential for stock modelling and future development of eel management policies.
