The aim of the PRO-EEL project is to increase our knowledge about European
eel reproductive and nutritional physiology in order to enable successful maturation and offspring production. This includes selecting appropriate broodstocks, enhancing egg and sperm quality, improving fertilisation methods and developing culture conditions favourable for the production of viable eggs and larvae. Another important area is the definition of suitable larval rearing conditions and initial feed for the larvae, which is crucial for their healthy development.
